Matthew Lovegrove : part five

How important is music to your poetry?

As a songwriter, the rhythm and syncopation of words has always been very important to me. I often map out the syllabic hits of the lyrics as I write a melody; this is something that has informed my poetic practice directly. In poetry, I find myself counting syllables and paying a lot of attention to those internal rhythms; when I get the right words to hit and stick, I am stoked.
