Q&A …

Arthur Sze: You Just Borrow These Things - Tricycle: The Buddhist Review. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

My creative influences are global, and they are not restricted to North American and Chinese poetry lineages. For instance, conversations with particle physicists Murray Gell-Mann, George Zweig, and Richard Slanksy in the mid-1980s were very important to me. Conversations with the Mayan translator Dennis Tedlock were important to me in the 1990s. These conversations had to do with emptiness and fullness, vision, and language, and they have informed the evolution of my sequences.
