Take An Assortment


“I just take an assortment of words, though not exactly at random, and I fuse them. It’s like embroidery. […] They are very intricate, my poems, a weaving of patterns of ins and outs and contradictions, one thing playing off another. I guess there’s a narrator somewhere, holding it all together, but I don’t feel it’s necessarily me. I feel there is someone else writing the poem sometimes.” —Medbh McGuckian
