Collagist Interview: Brent Goodman

Brent Goodman, whose poetry collection Far From Sudden is forthcoming from BLP, talks about his poem “Closet High School Girlfriend,” which was published in the April issue of Collagist. An excerpt: “An artist friend recently commented to me that “all sculpture is an attempt to defy gravity.” I suspect the same holds true for poetry, so that “slight persistent imbalance” we feel is the key to a poem’s potential for flight. The poetic line becomes a rolling fulcrum between two wings. Uncertainty creates an updraft.”
