This is the One Where The Flaky Poet Meets The Hipster

August 20, 2009

On this week’s HUNG, everyone’s favorite TV-poet, Tanya Skagle, is picked up by a hipster in a bar.  He notices her Proust tattoo, and says, “Proust?” and she replies, “I should have gotten Plath.”

From there, it’s ON.  Other amazing conversations ensue.  Hipster asks, “”What’s your process like, poet?” And then Tanya awkwardly explains that she hasn’t written for two years:  “I’ve been pretty blocked . . . I just I hate that, when people say I’m a poet and they don’t even write. When I was a child I was so prolific. My adolescence was so fertile! I hemorrhaged words!”
