Roxi Power Interview

February 1, 2024

It may have taken 60 years, deaths of her sister and mother and a season of catastrophic forest fires to bring it out, but Roxi Power has a book of poems and it is entitled The Songs That Objects Would Sing. A poet, performer and labor activist, a professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz and a Cornell alum, of Roxi Power Cecil Giscombe wrote that these poems “will brush the reader with a difficult and worthy joy.” Indeed. They’re filled with lament, a poetics that are alive and conscious and even a bit of awe for all the transient things in our world including capitalism. What a joy to talk to Roxi Power in the Zoom room about her fine work!.
