Interview with Joseph Massey

9781890650971I interviewed poet Joseph Massey for Full Stop: here.

The rhythms of cognition interest me as much as any object or series of objects in space; the latter doesn’t exist without the former, and that interplay is where so much of the poetry happens for me. How do we apprehend a world; how does a world apprehend us.

A few of Massey’s poems are available online (such as this one), though I’d gently nudge interested readers to hunt down 2014’s beautiful To Keep Time. And there is a new collection coming out this fall called Illocality. Lots to read. For now, read the interview.

[Sidebar: the beautiful image on the cover of To Keep Time is by the talented Wendy Heldmann, whose work is worth perusing here].
