(Some of the Eileen Tabios books at Poets House, New York City)
I didn't become a poet because of David Bowie. But I want each of my books to be significantly different from each other because of David Bowie and artists like him -- My take? They feel physics: the world is an infinite series of parallel universes where overlaps can occur due to curvature and weave. Thus, the artist's work will be multiple and varied and ... prolific. I didn't become a poet because of him, but if I stay one it will also be because of his inspiration. R.I.P.
Here is David Bowie's "100 FAVORITE BOOKS" -- of course it includes Poetry.
