Ciona Rouse - Vantablack Conversation

Ciona Rouse just celebrated the release of her book of poems, Vantablack, the first poetry chapbook published by Jack White's Third Man Records. Painter Jonathan Lisenby sits down with Ms. Rouse at her favorite writing spot in East Nashville, a tea parlor, to address her new book and the growing poetry scene in Nashville.  Instead, they discuss reading with your body, being "quick" on twitter, locking yourself in the trunk of an old car, and habitual narcing, among other things.  You can preview and purchase Vantablack, through Third Man Records, here:
