dc.description.abstractAlan Michael Parker begins the interview by reading his poem “The Work.” He goes on to discuss his early poetic influences, such as his own mother and the array of books she kept in his house when he was young, including books by poets such as Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Carl Sandberg, and Robert Frost. Other early influences include professors from his undergraduate studies as well as popular culture and commercialism. Parker touches on how empty space and the unsaid is important in poetry and discusses how the imagery of male power in his work is a rhetoric device. The interview concludes with the last poem in his collection Love Songs, titled “Wheel, O Wheel.”
