Interview at The California Journal of Poetics

I was interviewed in the new edition of The California Journal of Poetics.  The interview was conducted a couple of years ago now by John Wisniewski.

Topics covered include my two Salmon Poetry-published collections, living in Ireland, Seamus Heaney, the Stooges, how music can influence poetry, some of my recent work, and more.
