Mary Ruefle discusses meaning, experience, and significance within poetry. She says meaning is everywhere. And she says in her old age she is becoming a child again. Her Dunce poetry is a joy and revelation. Mary Ruefle reads the title poem, “Vow of Extinction,” “Tuna and a Play,” “Lorraine,” “How We Met,” “The Leaves,” and a haiku from her book’s end.
