Mishearing

Eduardo C. Corral, interviewed by Yezmin Villareal in BOMB, about Corral’s book Slow Lightning (Yale Univ. Press, 2012):

 

“As poets, we wrestle with language on the page but we also play with it. I’m always mishearing things in conversations on the subway and it always makes me smile. It always comes when I’m drafting something humorous or tenuous. Black humor is never really like chuckle laughter—it’s a wetted down kind of humor.”
