Rachelle Escamilla’s Interview with Me On “Out of Our Minds” on KKUP Cupertino | San Jose

I had the pleasure last week of spending an hour talking with Rachelle Escamilla, who interviewed me for her poetry radio show, “Out of Our Minds.” We talked about many things, including the politics of the canon, of race in the classroom, and the sexual politics of poetry readings, but I was, of course, most happy to talk about my two books of poetry, The Silence of Men and, my newest book, Words for What Those Men Have Done. I got a chance to read “Gender Politics,” a poem I have only read out loud once or twice before, and the title poem, “For My Son, A Kind of Prayer.” I also read a couple of love poems from The Silence of Men. I hope you’ll consider giving a listen.
