“Perhaps that was what I’m trying to grasp that with—self-restraint, self-rigor. To be figuring out how to bring that consciousness, how to bring that ethic to the page so that it goes beyond the page, is something that I think a lot of poets think about. It’s not just a lament or a protest, but an awareness that extends beyond the frame of the poem.”

Cynthia Hogue is the author of ten poetry collections, including instead, it is dark (Red Hen Press, 2023). Read and listen to Hogue discuss the Poem-a-Day curatorial approach and more on Poets.org
