I assumed KPFK would rather have me send listeners to their website, so I only posted a clip from this last week.Â Quite the contrary, host Lois P. Jones asked if I’d post the whole thing, so it has a permanent home.Â I just posted the first segment, with Peggy Dobreer.Â Here’s the second, with me — about 25 minutes long. I read “Cooking Dinner,” “Playing Our Part,” “After Hopper,” “Impressionism,” and “The Body.” Talk about fractals, the theme of my book, Rattle as a rogue journal, and the importance of poetry to society.

Poets Cafe Interview with Peggy Dobreer
Since the KPFK archives only last 90 days, host Lois P. Jones asked me to make a permanent home for the show I was on last week.Â Here is the first segment, with Peggy Dobeer — I thought she deserved her own page.
