Interview with Poet L.R. Johnson (OFF THE WALL)

1) What is the theme of your poem?

In this particular work, there is no theme, it was written in FREE-FLOW mode without thought or intention. An experiment which I do often

No motivation, just creativity that is in my head.

3) How long have you been writing poetry?

14 years

4) If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?

Nick Cave

5) What influenced you to submit to have your poetry performed by a professional actor?

As mentioned above, poetry is much more than words on a page and after superb responses from readers of my works, it was my wish to elevate it to another dimension

6) Do you write other works? scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?

I am a published author with six titles published, I also publish myself and re poetry, I have my collection of works being published very soon including superb images form my artist wife, Elisabeth Johnson, and a dear author, artist friend, Francis Charlton.

It will be published here:

Creating interesting, humorous, provoking written works in any form.
