“When I See André 3000 Buying Bananas at Trader Joe’s” featured in Brooklyn Poets, along with an interview.

Brooklyn Poets is featuring my poem “When I See André 3000 Buying Bananas at Trader Joe’s” today for their “Poet of the Week” series. There’s also an accompanying interview where I talk about why if you have feelings for someone, you should tell them, the relationship between love and fear, and that one time I ran into Jeff Goldblum.

Richard Blanco (Part 2/4)

You spend so many hours giving your work the space and time it needs to morph and change, to say what it came to say. Then one day you click send, and it’s in a hero’s inbox… Honestly, “honored” doesn’t even scratch the surface…I’m still looking for the right words. (Part 2/4)

Also, don’t miss Richard Blanco’s 2019 stunner, How to Love a Country, which came out in March from Beacon Press.

Then one day you click send, and it’s in a hero’s inbox. I really sat with who my poetry north-stars were, whose voices, in a perfect world, I’d want to usher this book from the private to the public…Honestly, “honored” doesn’t even scratch the surface…I’m still looking for the right words.
