Question and Answer
INTERVIEWER: Why do you write this blog?
FIORELLA: It's my outlet. It lets me drain/ The swamp of my brain.
INTERVIEWER: You answered me in a rhymed dimeter couplet. Why?
FIORELLA: It's a game I play with myself. Blending the message, the beat, and the rhyme is a challenge.
INTERVIEWER: Lately you've used your poetic skills to challenge Donald Trump. Why not prose?
FIORELLA: People are more likely to remember a short, smartly-turned rhymed verse than a long, thoughtful essay.
INTERVIEWER: You want your poetry to be remembered?
FIORELLA: I want my message to be remembered. We all have our roles in the resisitance movement, and mine is to fuel the fire.\
