-Stephen Dunn interviews himself over at Poetry Daily


--Really enjoyed this essay on the nature of the "I" in poetry, by Rachel Zucker, from over at the Academy of American Poets.


Killer first line of the moment:

Scatter my ashes at Six Mile Creek.

from Patrick Phillips' "Will"


A really excellent project is going on in my home-neighborhood. Check out ballardsessions.com for some well-done videos of some of Seattle's best young musicians, such as the righteous Noah Gunderson featured below.
