3.3 Terrance Hayes: "Three Acts of Love"

The Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry Podcast

Welcome to the third episode of Season Three of the Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry podcast. This season, we're listening to the lectures of Terrance Hayes. Hayes’s lectures circle the work and life of Etheridge Knight, a poet who has been a muse and mystery (and ghost mentor) for Hayes throughout his career. In each of the six lectures we’ll hear this season, Hayes uses Knight to anchor his broad explorations of poems and poetics. This week, we’ll hear Hayes give a talk called, “Three Acts of Love,” on three of Knight’s love poems and the crafting of love poems. This talk was originally given March 13, 2015, at New York University. Terrance Hayes's book based on his BWLS lectures, _To Float In The Space Between: A Life and Work in Conversation with The Life and Work of Etheridge Knight_ (Wave Books, 2018) is here. To view a few of Hayes's correlative drawings from the book, click here.

Soneto estadounidense para mi asesino del pasado y del futuro (Terrance Hayes, en la voz de Gonzalo Heredia)

Orden de traslado

Si vos nunca sentiste lo fluido de una mujer correrte por los muslos y los testículos, Señor Trompeta si no sabés que el primer hombre era de hecho una mujer cuyo clítoris se le hinchó tanto a causa del anhelo que le colgaba como un dedo apuntado al amante que revolvía sus praderas Señor Trompeta qué carajo sabés te sentís solo porque jamás pudiste desatar la aterradora pena resplandeciente de tu madre quiero decir la mía esa loca de mierda que tengo adentro es ella mi manera de llorar es ella mi manera de quebrarme es ella varonil Trompeta yo no puedo hablar por vos pero los hombres como yo que nunca hicimos el amor con otro hombre siempre vamos a estar en algún lado entre los pliegues de nuestro anhelo avergonzados de eso

Terrance Hayes on his selection: I'm reading two poems by Wanda Coleman to celebrate the April publication of her selected poems, Wicked Enchantment: “Things No One Knows” and “American Sonnet #54.”  I’m also reading two of my poems in conversation with her work: “The Things-No-One-Knows Blues,” from my sophomore collection, Hip Logic, and an unpublished American Sonnet. She was a guiding light for me even before she became a friend. I was honored to edit her selected poems.
