One Reply to “Best American Poetry 2017”

  1. I just read your poem, “Dear Skull.” It was exquisite. The lines “tolerate this animate interlude, nervous tic of cell & swoosh,/elasticity & vein//& you’ll emerge, democratically beautiful,//armature to nothing” were sad and brilliant, the definition of sublimity. I may give this poem to my AP Literature students when we get to the graveyard scene in Hamlet, a kind of memento mori plus hope. Anyway, I wanted to let you know how much I liked it. I’m a poet as well. Scratching away on stone tablets, throwing them down the mountain not toward the latest idols, but equally in prophetic confusion, lonesome, turning laws to pebbles.
