    I particularly like the ending of this piece, Jack. I’ve just written a short play on the theme of the journey or the destination. Dovetails! I love dovetails. My tortoise mind has been ruminating the topic for some time before, certainly during, and now–as additional mental revision. “Writing with Clarity and Style” is an amazing book. (And this format doesn’t allow italics or underlining.)

    One of the things I enjoy most about your interviews has been your inclusion of a variety of details. Questions may resemble each other, but your answers make each interview its own. It may be true that we are not static beings, but many folks slide into sameness. Your skill impresses. I appreciate your examples too.

    Looking forward to your new book. I’m trying to wrap my head around having two poetry chapbooks. This one in presale until today, (yikes!) that comes out in August, I put together last spring, during the pandemic, after my mother died, and Roy’s dad died: “Held Together with Tape and Glue” (https://www.finishinglinepress.com/product/held-together-with-tape-and-glue-by-pamela-hobart-carter/). The reason I went for collage was that the words were already there, like a prop. In my grief I needed that prop. “Her Imaginary Museum” (https://kelsaybooks.com/products/her-imaginary-museum) I wrote quite a bit before but asked to include one newer poem that seemed to fit bc it was an ekphrastic.

    Best to you. ALWAYS.
