JA Sutherland: The past.
cafebabel.com: Do you have a favourite line or fragment of poetry?
JA Sutherland: There’s a short poem by Roger McGough called 'Vinegar'. It’s one of my favourites.
i feel like a priest
in a fish & chip queue
as the vinegar runs through
how nice it would be
to buy a supper for two.
cafebabel.com: Suggest a question for next time.
JA Sutherland: Should the poem ‘If’ be made gender neutral?
cafebabel.com: Draw us a picture.
cafebabel.com: It’s… an animal of some kind.
JA Sutherland: It’s a goat.
cafebabel.com: I knew that.
The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that JA was actually our first post-it poet to be interviewed - apologies for breaking the chain of questions from one poet to another! Check back in a fortnight for our next post-it poet, Matt MacDonald.
