'A collected poems' is either a gravestone or a testimonial to survival.
Write on my gravestone: Infidel, Traitor.
--infidel to every church that compromises with wrong; traitor to every government that oppresses the people.
It's about stories. If I can tell the story to America, whether it's Riesling or a boxer from Harlem, it will sell. I know on my gravestone it's going to be, 'Storyteller.'
