Mix Diskerud’s parlance often seems summoned directly from the Beat Generation, and the USMNT midfielder visited that era again in an interview with Bob Williams.
Diskerud, 26, joined Goteborg on loan from New York City FC last week, and made his debut for the Swedish club at the weekend. The midfielder played seven minutes as a substitute in the Svenska Cupen tournament.

We encourage you to read the whole interview, in which Diskerud admits he’s “infatuated” with the idea of playing for the USMNT again, but here are a couple choice cuts regarding his absence from the NYCFC fold (he’s open to a return) and his wild poem that foreshadowed his exit:
Q How frustrating has it been not being able to play competitively in the past year or so?
A Took some Zen to deal with it.
Q What did your recent Instagram poem mean?
A Don’t just consider what the author thinks. Consider what you think.
