Interview with Metta Sama

Speaking of Marvels interviews Metta Sama about her Nous-zot chapbook After "Sleeping to Dream"/After After.

"The chapbook was, as I took it, a challenge from Marthe Reed, who asked me if I had more ekphrastic-ish poems, similar to ones I’d published in B O D Y. I did not, and those poems were not ekphrastic in the sense that we talk about it, but reverse ekphrastics: poems that had lived for a very long time under different titles and were then re-titled as being “After” artwork that, when I saw the artwork, made me think of the poems, in very very slant ways."

Copies of After "Sleeping to Dream"/After After may be purchased here.
