Callused Hands Feature

Happy to say that Ivan at Callused Hands just posted a five poem feature by me and also a brief interview where I am asked a little about advice for beginning poets or young poets, and about influences and so on. (I forgot to mention Roky Erickson there.) There's also an excellent first issue up below. A very promising zine and they are open to submissions. I wholeheartedly support their idea of "ordinary literature for ordinary people," getting rid of the nasty taste of elitism that plagues academic poetry.

Anyway, the interview and feature are here.
