The poem is an exploratory space

Great interview of one of my favorites, Cathy Wagner, by another favorite (friend & poet), Virginia Konchan:

“I want the poem to be an exploratory space, and statements in a poem don’t necessarily have truth-value in the way that statements in other contexts might…I want my poems to say things that risk being wrong in someone’s eyes…it’s a poem…a mad journey aside from life.”
