Andrew McSorley : part four

How important is music to your poetry?

Extremely important, even when it might seem it’s not. Very often, the sound of something is how a poem begins for me. I often start out with a rhythm, a pitter patter of lines in my head. Sometimes the words make sense, but sometimes it’s just a melody trying to get out. Once I get that on the page I can start writing something with true intention, but, often, that’s the place for me to begin: a series of sounds.
