In Our Books Interviews Daniel Ari

I really feel good about this interview at In Our Books Here are some reasons why:

  • I'm proud of the poem "this glamorous profession" that won the contest there and garnered the interview.
  • I'm pleased with what I wrote for the interview.
  • I think Ina Roy and Andrea Heiberg have a really beautiful blog going. I love the look and feel of it, and I really enjoy their posts.
  • I'm tickled at the strange conflux of influences that led me to discover a poem that I very much like—it's a found poem, born out of the writings of Patrick Sokas.
  • I won 50 kroner for my poem!

Signed,
Your Humble Host,
Linky McLinkerson


Here's the poem:


 “this glamorous profession”
after Patrick Sokas, M.D.


Bill took an interest in my suit.
“Where did you get it?”

I looked at my feet and mumbled.

“I have one just like it.”

I glared. “This was my only suit, a mail-order suit.”

“You probably saw a picture on a model.”

“It looked good, though it was probably pinned up in back.”

“You said, ‘I want that suit...’”

“Actually I said, ‘I can afford that suit.’”

Bill took away my notebook,
and he played reporter for a while.
