Andrew Joron, author of The Absolute Letter (Flood Editions, 2017), interviewed by Barbara Claire Freeman in OmniVerse:


“Stopping this cycle of violence means radically changing the world system. But we first have to set fire to our minds—using words, the stuff of poetry—before we can set fire to a system based on capitalist greed, on the one hand, and cultural xenophobia, on the other. Poetry—which has no market value, and whose operating principle is xenophilia—wants something other, makes a space for the other.”
