I had the plea­sure last week of spend­ing an hour talk­ing with Rachelle Escamil­la, who inter­viewed me for her poet­ry radio show, “Out of Our Minds.” We talked about many things, includ­ing the pol­i­tics of the canon, of race in the class­room, and the sex­u­al pol­i­tics of poet­ry read­ings, but I was, of course, most hap­py to talk about my two books of poet­ry, The Silence of Men and, my newest book, Words for What Those Men Have Done. I got a chance to read “Gen­der Pol­i­tics,” a poem I have only read out loud once or twice before, and the title poem, “For My Son, A Kind of Prayer.” I also read a cou­ple of love poems from The Silence of Men. I hope you’ll con­sid­er giv­ing a lis­ten.
