"Author of two poetry books (Ten Last Night), Viggo Mortensen has an interesting way with words. On Don't Tell Me What To Do , Viggo reads his stuff while jazz music flows away nicely in the background. The whole things comes off very dada and oblique, and sounds very much like a reading you might hear in your local artsy coffee shop."

"The Actor, who speaks Spanish and Danish as well as English, has a new poetry CD called One Less Thing to Worry About He mines his day job in his verse, which is of the spare, dark, ruminating kind, as in Edit : "The man you were/ For one short season/ Has been pruned/ Removed/ To a well-groomed graveyard/ That smells like popcorn." Although the acting gig is the breadwinner, "If I could make money on poetry," Mortensen says, "I would still act. When they work, they work on the same level."
