You don’t necessarily have to write to be a poet. Some people work in gas stations and they’re poets. I don’t call myself a poet, because I don’t like the word…I’m a trapeze artist.

Shovels and Rope - Tiny Desk Concert from our friends nprmusic. Playing 2 nights this weekend in Boston.

Let’s talk, for a second, about shovels and rope. As tools. You might regard shovels as a device for clearing driveways after snowstorms. And you might use rope to pull a sled, or rig up a tree swing in nicer weather.
