Clip: Special | 1m 22s
Louis Jenkins says he writes prose poems. In his own words he says "the prose poem is not a real poem, of course. One of the major differences is that the prose poet is simply too lazy or too stupid to break the poems into lines." Jenkins has received national press in recent years when actor Mark Rylance on two separate occasions recited Jenkins’ poems in Tony Award acceptance speeches.
