Three Questions with Shane McCrae

Pen America sat down with award-winning poet Shane McCrae to ask about love, community, and history. A tease: “It’s something like a tingling, like a small tingling rush of joy that seems to start in my chest, just above my heart and below my throat, and spreads both up and down, so that I want to say the words out loud and yet I feel a little short of breath and sped up inside, because the feeling has reached my heart and lungs.” Read it all here (and stay tuned for Shane’s forthcoming chapbook Nonfiction).
