“One of my favorite lines is from the modern poet Marianne Moore. She defines poetry as both a poet being a literalist of the imagination, but a poem being something that “has imaginary gardens with real toads in them.” I have to make that so believable, even though it is imaginary.

In this engaging interview she shares a glimpse of her poetry, her history, writing process and more.
