the words interview

anonymous asked:

"if izzy can deal with raphael being ace" did she really say that? as someone who's ace: ouch, thanks a lot emeraude 😑

I just listened to it again for you and her exact words in that interview were: “We know that he is asexual, that he is not, you know, sexually interested in doing anything with her, is that something Isabelle can deal with. […]”

Marx: How does a poem come into being?

Sexton: Oh, that’s a terrible question! I don’t know. Sometimes you get a line, a phrase, sometimes you’re crying, or it’s the curve of the chair that hurts you and you don’t know why…what you’re doing is hunting for what you mean, what you’re trying to say.

Bonus aka my reaction:

I think the kind of landscape that you grew up in, it lives with you. I don’t think it’s true of people who’ve grown up in cities so much; you may love a building, but I don’t think that you can love it in the way that you love a tree or a river or the colour of the earth; it’s a different kind of love.

Literally could listen to him talk all day

I naturally prefer the form of the book. We’ve loved it for centuries, and no wonder: Look at it; its always-opening-to-something, its two wings, its two sides making one form, its act of opening us as we open it — you can’t “open” a screen like you can literally open a book. And a book always holds the reminder of the organic world, the trees that went to make it — and the word “spine” was originally used for the spine of the book because of the spine of the creatures whose skins were once used to bind books, the place where the skin folded over the creature’s own spine. That’s how close to the process of life, death, time, growth and oxygen the form of the book is.
