Fives logo – a stylised number five

with Dorothea Lasky

The last thing that made you smile

Looking at an orange glass vase being hit by the sunshine outside and observing the fractured shades of yellow and red. Although that wasn’t maybe the kind of smile you meant. Before that, it was last night, watching a skit from the Key and Peele show called ‘Continental Breakfast.’

A secret

My secret is that I would never tell a secret this way. Or more so, my mood today is to keep all things hidden.

The last thing you wrote

I just made final revisions on my latest book of poems, which is coming out next spring.

Your favourite city

Los Angeles. But there are so many places I’d like to travel to, so this could change someday.

What you’d place in a time capsule

As many of my teeth as I could spare. A long love letter to a person of the future. A list of things I imagine would be happening when they open it up. A spell for peace.
