Mike thank you again for your collage, your work is exactly what our art editor loves - something that doesn't need to be touched at all before the text is added and we blend it into a NUNUM piece. Speaking of 'words', I'm always curious where people started reading, what is the first book you remember reading alone?
'The House on the Cliff' a Hardy Boys adventure by Franklin W. Dixon.
I'm sure you aren't alone, I can remember a handful of those being in my room as a kid as well. What about the last book you read that made you think, damn that's a good book?
I'd have to say ‘They Knew What They Wanted: Poems and Collages’ by John Ashbery.
Most of us have a phone or some other device with us constantly but I always have a pen in my bag for making notes, have you transitioned to doing that digitally or are you still traditional about it?
Pen, pencil or phone: all three – inspiration occurs anytime, anywhere, anyhow.
Variety, I like it. What advice would you give someone who is just starting to send their work out to journals?
Advice: ‘bugs did die against the windshield’
Do you see tenderness in your work?
Sounds like you’re talking about meat.
What’s wrong with regret?
I don’t know. I’m working on gray areas in life.
Did you lie today?
Circling and finding.
Thank you again for letting NUNUM use your work Mike and all the best.
