Show Notes

I read my very latest poem, "To a writer heard at four A.M. on the BBC World Service" and I ask Adriana for an explanation for the obsession with bad news in the media.  Is  being generally very happy really a barrier to producing  meanginful work as a writer?  Do I have darker depths that I can explore?  (Like the writer I heard speaking).  Should I really bother?
