Our Greatest Teachers: An Interview with Mollie Raymond

Episode 14 Mollie Raymond

In this episode Les sits down with one of his greatest teachers, his daughter, Mollie Raymond. Together they discuss a variety of topics to explore the perspectives of a teenaged human growing up in the environment resulting from a pandemic.


“Wand” by: Mollie Raymond

writing is such a sacred thing and i feel like a bulldozer troll
for stamping on it with my
giant cement feet
for abusing words
imposing my will.

sorry i have not been gentle
and sorry that these days i only write to
take out the trash in my mind.
sorry i’m not open
to receiving, to submitting
to the universe.

sorry i’m not a wand,
one end planted in the earth, drawing up
water and minerals, the other end pointed
at the sky, channeling all
the sun’s brilliance,
then transmuting these energies into art.

when my therapist curses, it makes me think
it’s okay to take out my feelings on the ground,
to stomp, to scream, to say fuck.
sometimes i should still be quiet.
birds and singing bowls
make gentle music.
you have to stop talking to listen.

thank you for humbling me, god.
god knows, well i guess you know,
i needed it.
