Adam LeFevre: Home is Everywhere 

Page 3 of 3

Assembling a collection involves spreading poems across the floor, with a lot of trial and error. "It's so important to me not to make it a miscellany. There need to be thematic resonances, musical resonances, with a musician/playwright's drive to find an arc to help it cohere from the first poem to the last." When his publisher's author questionnaire asked, "Who do you see as the audience for your poems?" LeFevre told himself, "Don't be a smartass, but I couldn't help myself." He wrote, "If Joe Sixpack married Emily Dickinson, their child would be the audience for these poems."

If Emily Dickinson married Joe Sixpack, their child might resemble Adam LeFevre, word-drunk in his butter-yellow kitchen with a plate of cookies and a stack of poetry books from the teetering pile in the bathroom. "I enjoy the buffet," he says, beaming. Bon appetit.
