Has your consideration of poetry changed since you began?
began a long time ago. In the early days, I used poetry as a place to envision
utopian thinking, how things should be, the future I wanted. Then I shifted
more into documenting injustices large and small, systemic failures and limits,
and I think I am still writing in this vein. Recently, I’ve challenged myself
to read and write love poetry, which is not easy.
