"My poetry hat is mighty and fearsome": An Interview with Bucky Sinister

By Harriet Staff

Check out this "interview with author, comedian, and poet Bucky Sinister about his new book, Time Bomb Snooze Alarm" over at The Rumpus.

Here's a snippet:

Rumpus: What can fans of your poetry expect from the new book?

Sinister: The poems are getting longer, for one thing. There are a lot of poems about the Mission in the 90’s. More of the poems are about other people, rather than being all about me. This book contains the first poems I’ve written since I started doing standup five years ago, which affected my word choice and rhythm.

Rumpus: How is your weekly comedy show going? [Bucky is a founding performer of the comedy group The Business at The Dark Room in San Francisco every Wednesday.]

Sinister: It’s going really well. Most weeks, we have a full house. We recently added Caitlin Gill and Chris Thayer to the regular crew, and they’re doing some amazing work in there.
