"each minute lives in its dying ..."

For your listening pleasure, take a walk to Jeff Davis’s blog, with a link to an interview and reading Jeff did with the poet Thomas Meyer for the Wordplay radio program.

The show itself is a lovely wander through ideas about conversational and poly-vocal poetry, the strange ways of influence, the Dao as a voice speaking – “tell me everything you know” – the lyric as something overheard, of letting the lines get mixed up, composition as a kind of gamelan, and taking a computer print-out for a walk. As well, of course, the poems which are wonderful and moving, poems of loss, endings and letting go.
