Adam Wilson is what they call an ‘Internet personality’.

Here is Adam Wilson’s bio:

But he is more than just that. On top of being a lesbro and a poet, he is a pretty funny guy (fake Craig’s list ad):

He is thoughtful:

He is a mad tweeter yo:

And he is polite when you meet him on the street. He will even share a joke with you about taking a book for a walk.

On top of all that, he is a person just like you or me, he just spends most of his social life on the Internet.

ADAMSWERS:

If you would give yourself a nickname what would it be?

Big Red, although other people have said this. I’m just agreeable.

If you could switch one body part with anyone else in the world living or dead, who and what would it be?

I would swap out my torso for Usain Bolt’s torso.

In five words, describe your most uncomfortable dream.

Zombie Walmart greeters run amok.

What is your favourite word?

“Oscillations.”

What does that word smell like?

That spot where the organic smell of the forest meets the saline smell of an ocean.

What is your spirit animal?

A grizzly bear.

If ghosts existed, would you want to meet one? If so, what would you ask it?

I would rather not; ghosts seems to be tied to anger or tragedy. But I would ask them if ghosts sleep and dream.

If you could share a bottle of alcohol with anyone who has ever existed, who would it be and what would you drink?

I would love to meet Frank O’Hara, one of the great 20th century poets who died young and tragically, and I imagine we would do well with bourbon.

What would you rather have as a pet: A dragon, a unicorn Pegasus or Ezra Levant?

Ezra Levant. Then I could put a muzzle on him.

Finally, if you could live your life over again with guaranteed success, what would you do?

I always wanted to be an abstract expressionist painter, so, that.
