Interview with Matthew Pacuruco

Interview by Kevin Cruz

What inspired you or gave you the inspiration to write this piece?

What inspired me to write this piece was the idea of how my life took a turn when I opened up with my sexuality to close ones.

Did you have any challenges in writing the piece?

I didn’t have any challengers when writing this. However, the structure of it was more experimental than challenging.

In your piece, you organize the lines differently. For example one line was on the other side of the poem, the following line was middle. Why did you decide to do this? What was the inspiration for that particular style?

The inspiration of this style was a last minute thing I included. I wanted to seem scattered at that moment when I felt vulnerable. it’s simply the vision of my thoughts.
