In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
I know men find intimacy difficult. I have to have a lot of sex with someone before I’ll ask them out for a drink.
Poetry and film
My two favourite media. My two favourite films are Jacques Tati’s Les
vacances de Monsieur Hulot and Aki
Kaurismäki’s La vie de bohème.
Poetry is no more a vocation than good health is.
I started writing poetry when I was 11 and haven’t
stopped yet. Marilyn Hacker and Zbigniew Herbert were early influences; Geoffrey Hill and August
Kleinzahler more recent ones.
I particularly admire Christopher Logue’s
retelling of The Iliad. Recently I came across
collections by New Yorker Kate Light, hard to find
but worth looking out for.
