Author Spotlight: Dion O’Reilly

Dion O'Reilly

Dion O’Reilly can be found on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and their website. You can read Dion’s piece ‘Age’ in Epoch’s Issue 04: Transitions.

‘Transitions’ is such an evocative theme, what compelled you to submit for this issue?  

I saw the theme “transitions” and thought immediately of my poem “Age,” Which is about aging personally and the idea of “age” as a geologic or historical term, which implies transition or change. I like the idea of zooming into the self and then out to the larger universe. Making those kinds of connections is at the heart of poetry.

Do you have a routine for writing? If so, what is it and how has it evolved? 

I write everyday in the morning and read in the afternoons. I get up and write until lunch, and then do life–exercise, errands, walk the dog, cooking–then I read until dinner, after which I am useless. 

Do you find that CNF comes easy to you as a writer and/or what is challenging about it? For poets: What is most challenging and most rewarding about using real life in your poetry?  

Real life is my only material. Even if a poem is archetypal or surreal, it is a reflection of real life. Even the mind on psilocybin is real life; anything experienced, mystical or mundane, is real life and worthy of living in a poem. 

What is song is on repeat for you right now?

Stevie Wonder, “I’ll be Loving you Always.”

    “You look great!” “Wow, you’re beautiful.” “Gorgeous, as always.” There are no other comments. I don’t care if they look like they haven’t slept in a week and there’s an entire plate of spinach stuck in their teeth – don’t risk it.
    This is the comment you post on a picture that everyone else commented on at least six months ago. Typically, this comment is just blatant proof that you’ve been doing some facebook stalking.
    It’s the conversation that probably shouldn’t even be on a facebook wall, but definitey should not be on a picture. For future reference a picture is not the proper place to ask “do you want to hang out later today?”

    This is the one that seems nice the first time you read it, and then you realize – – it’s really not. It’s the comment that says “Great angle!” or “Wow, this picture makes you look great,” it’s the comment version of saying you don’t normally look like this, clearly this picture is false advertisement (a screenshot of this type of comment appears in the teaser spot on the home page).
    Commenting is a key aspect of the photo experience, whatever message they’re sending. But for those of us too lazy to come up with witticisms, there’s always the like button.
