“I have two manual typewriters that I use. I prefer them. I started out that way. I get habitual about stuff. I just prefer it over the computer because it doesn’t feel like you’re doing anything. You’re looking at a screen and clicking the keys, but the keys they’re just representative. They don’t actually hammer a letter down on the page. I like the page a lot. I don’t relate to the screen so much.”

“The difference between poetry and prose, and why if you’re not acculturated to poetry, you might resist it: that page is frightening. Why is it not filled? The two categories of people who don’t feel that way are children and prisoners. So many prison poets; they see that gap and experience it differently. I’m for the gap!”
~ Poet Eileen Myles

“Wise men build bridges, foolish men build barriers.”
