Question & Answer 1 – Cal Freeman

Question 1

There is a globe
somewhere
that doesn’t
remind me
of the tropes

I use
over and over
again –
like some anaemic
artist failing

to find nourishment
in moving on.
What ideas
do you find yourself
repeating in your work?

– Aaron Kent

Answer 1

There is a globe where
stunted carp float
among ceramic decorations.

Some nights I write
to the worst rock n’ roll
of my mother’s generation.

Songs of dammed eutrophic
pools,
hagiographies of the drowned

in stone-eared
cadences.
