Foamola—that’s poet/lyricist Sparrow, Sylvia Gorelick, and composer Lawrence Fishberg— sing the haunting “Moontime” and the rollicking “I Put My Radio in The Refrigerator So the Vegetables Can Dance.”
Sparrow is the name of the poet that music critic Robert Christgau called “the funniest man in America.” Yesterday, this interview I did with Sparrow was broadcast on radio station WBAI’s Arts Express program. I think you’ll find him both profound and irreverent. Click on the grey triangle above to enjoy both his poetry and conversation.
And oh yes—Sparrow gives Arts Express a hot political scoop!
The sparrow is quite happy to have the heroic mockingbird protect it from the black snake. Earlier on, there were starlings in the trees above who were emitting warning cries, and a few of flew them down to mob the snake to make it move away from their nests.
