da Un momento with Josie Di Sciascio-Andrews di Domenico Capilongo
What part does your Italian heritage play in your poetry?
I believe that all of us are filters for the culture/s we have been imbued with throughout our lives. If we write from a place within ourselves, rather than extrinsically from borrowed lines from other poets’ texts, then our own experiences: of people, places and contexts lived, do come into play in our words. So yes, a computer ‘doc’ is succinct and razor boned language, but a ‘red accordion’ opens up a wide cultural contextual landscape. So perhaps, yes, my heritages, both Italian and Canadian do feature into my words. It’s unavoidable, unless one aggregates ideas only from the cerebral part of the brain.
