    Plus, leave it to Megan Lent to ask you such a great interview question: “In your new book of poetry Microtones, you write about leaving. People leaving each other, and people leaving places, and time leaving everyone.” (http://housefirebooks.com/here-is-what-i-remember-most-megan-lent-interviews-robert-vaughan/)
    Maybe that’s just a subset of loss, maybe something different. But I thought it was cool how the poet can sort of respond, with a burst of insight, at something that might be marinating or fueling his process.
    Another great post!

    1. Jamez, I like this very, very much: ‘If orange is the new black, the process is the new pink.’ Phenomenal and quotable line. And yes Megan Lent was an amazing interview, I so want her to interview every writer or artist I know. Someday you and I have to sit down at a cafe, and really dig into these insights, delve into the creative process itself. Nothing gets me higher than this! Thanks for you!

  2. Reading the backstory of “On Leaving” was so informative to me as a struggling poet as well as very interesting. I love “Microtones” and it has a home on my bedside table where I can read from it at the end of a long day.
