He's the editor in chief at the writer of that the The Saturday Piper and the author of a new collection off poetry called I said the Sea was folded. Eric, the book begins with a prologue. This is a story told backwards because that's how we start. Is that the same as the cooker Guard line of that We can only understand life backwards, but it must be lived forwards. Is it the same idea? Um, the other coach guideline. Everything contains its necessary opposite. I think holding Miro's help. It's more. It's more that than the other. Oh, It was the only way I could find to arrange the pants. Actually, I, um I decided Every year of our relationship. I give Evelyn chat book of poems that I've written that year and during the year Usually I get from a poem every few days. I write one. And I decided I wanted to publish them and thought that was enormous Act of love and didn't appreciate really Also, what a transgression of the relationship it would be to do that, and Not least of all because it forces Evelyn, who is a a non binary composer and has their own practice that is, there's forces them into a role of muse that they never asked to occupy.

Your relationship with Evelyn. Is it about trying to fend them the relationship as much as anything? Because I wrote these poems. Very quickly and as they occurred to me, and I wrote them over the course of three years. I didn't really know that I was doing any fathoming, but I think Don't think of the palms is any different to my journalism. I don't think of writing a poem is very different to writing a political essay. And all of that. I'm just trying to understand the world as it happens. I think that Don Watson was saying something the other day that you know anyone who writes knows that when they write, they think And that's certainly true at the same time. Anyone who writes know that when you write you feel, and I think that was the thing that I was trying to never get it. It's not so much fathoming necessarily.
