Tele(Vision)

If not for our obsession with science & poetry--an intersection explored by Katherine Larson in this brief interview--we might never have discovered Newshour Poetry Series, the Poetry Foundation's answer to the mid-afternoon slump.  The videos hover around the five-minute mark, & include not only reflections on process & snippets of verse but also the occasional childhood snapshot.  Featured poets include such honorary oonables as Rae Armantrout, Tracy K. Smith, & Khaled Mattawa.  Enjoy!  (& then, get back to work, you!)
