Laurie Weeks Interview


This week Bomblog interviewed Laurie Weeks about Zipper Mouth (our October Monthly Rumpus selection). Topics included gardening, writing, and portals.

“If I do cut-ups or mix things together with, say, journal writings or other stuff that’s just hideous on its own, it will usually lead somewhere. I’ll feel it in my solar plexus. I think that, speaking of the vegetable over-mind, my rational mind is my censoring mind and it only has access to a certain amount of language. But the images that you can make with words give you a way out of that.”
