Terrance Hayes Interview and Poem

"Surprise, I like to think, is the engine that drives me to keep writing. If the writer isn't surprised, chances are the reader won't be surprised either . . . Stephen Dobyns says something like that somewhere. But no, it doesn't always come naturally. Sometimes it's a matter of excavation. As in life, in poetry a discovery or two is usually buried beneath the first thoughts and assumptions."

Eduardo, thanks for the link to this interview. Terrance Hayes is so smart! I always like to read what he says about poetry -- as well as his poetry.
