"Often people say that the poetry is difficult because it's anti-narrative. But in fact, actually, every single sentence is a narrative and I would characterize it more as hyper-narrative rather than anti-narrative. And once you get past that stumbling block it's no harder than Gregory Corso."  Ron Silliman https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgqYaGEh5s0

 Poetry Foundation? Because they have 1,000 podcasts and they’re all amazing. I promise to only recommend two. POTS explores the diverse world of contemporary American poetry with readings by poets, interviews with critics, and short poetry documentaries.
Poetry Foundation VS is the voice of contemporary poetry: it’s insightful, it’s boisterous, and it’s a goddamn good time. VS isn’t any ol’ interview podcast; the concept is really interesting. Poets come onto the mic to confront the ideas that move them, both in real life and on the page. This to conversations you would never expect, which makes the best audio. Though the best part of the show has to be the hosts. Danez Smith and Franny Choi,

Ephemera

Magic bones haunt Takeo province, await validating experts to analyze. The villagers who took bone parts to their homes reported becoming dizzy and feverish, according to Radio Australia. The dead of Takeo are archived on-line. The photographer was only following orders. Tripped his lens. They were bludgeoned, as bullets were too dear. The archive perpetuates before, not after, blurry as Schrodinger's cat, though we see its eyes. Ai! he says, seeing the picture on a box. Vision contained, domesticated. Cooking as self- or other improvement; value innovation, the president tells cadets. I imagined an erotics of starvation in the Khmer Rouge cookbook; she returned home dressed in black, a broken mirror. Lend me your ears and eyes, oh my editorial conscience. Her words were excess, invention, surcharge on memory's credit line. The wedding hall collapse was due not to terrorism but incompetence, articles of impermanence inscribed in cement. They're accustomed to terrorism, not accident. Do you know where your other is?

-Susan M. Schultz, from And Then Something Happened (Salt, 2004))
