Louise Glück at Wilde Boys

It's been three years since I began hosting the Wilde Boys salons. Last night was a very special evening. Louise Glück came to the salon. We talked about her incredible body of work and she also read new poems.

I love this photograph of us. We're talking about Keats and Milton.

Rimbaud in New York

I wrote this short piece for Poetry Daily and Paul Legault translated the Rimbaud poem I refer to in it. It's a story about first moving to New York and reading Rimbaud. It's a story about love really. As is the photograph below, which was taken in Paris, in July, in 2010.
