Today, I am sharing Emerson's interview with one of my mentors, poet Grace Cavalieri. Grace and Emerson spoke for Grace's long-running radio series (now podcast) "The Poet and The Poem."
|Grace Cavalieri at the mic
It was first dark when the plow turned it up.
Unsown, it came fleshless, mud-ruddled, nothing
but itself, the tendon’s bored eye threading
a ponderous needle. And yet the pocked fist
of one end dared what was undone
in the strewing, defied the mouth of the hound
that dropped it.
The whippoorwill began
again its dusk-borne mourning.
Read the rest at the Academy of American Poets.
