Tracy Hamon : part four

How important is music to your poetry?

Music and the sound of a line are really important to my writing. I’m obsessive about line breaks, the sound of the word at the end of the line, the cadence of the line, the rhythm of it, and so on. The musicality of a poem, to me anyway, is how I hold the poem in my head. Each word has a sound and when you string them together, they create music.
