I'm going to CA Conrad's hotel tonight with Sommer & Noah & Katie Jean to record ourselves for Jupiter88. Thanks CA for inviting us over. I wish you lived here permanently in a house. Or I could build you a fort in my living room.

Aaron Shurin on the Craft of Poetry
San Francisco poet Aaron Shurin considers the question “What is prosody?” in light of the current movement away from meter and traditional forms. Shurin looks at what new elements are at work in contemporary poetry, such as collage and sonic play, referencing both classical and current models, from Homer and Shakespeare to Denise Levertov, Robert Creeley, Michael Palmer and Lisa Jarnot. Shurin explores some of the ways in which poetic craft continues to make meaning in contemporary poetry.
