Why people hate poetry

Molly Snyder writes about poetry for OnMilwaukee.com and here she interviews several Milwaukee or Milwaukee-connected poets (including yours truly) about why they think people hate poetry.

“It’s funny, people I meet – non-writers – for the most part say they like poetry, but don’t seem to actually read much of it,” says August. “But so much poetry being written today is accessible and easier to relate to than maybe ‘The Wasteland’ or Pound’s ‘Cantos.’ And it is so good.”

Read it here and put Molly into your regular reading schedule. She’s a good one!
