CORPSES OF THE FUTURE

Written by Crosbie, Lynn
The Corpses of the Future is a sustained, confessional new collection of poems by Lynn Crosbie. It tells the story of her father's battle with frontotemporal dementia and blindness, following a stroke. The poems chronologically recount the poet's conversations and time with her father, and capture his still-astonishing means of communicating. The book's title is his, sardonic, remark.

NATURE POEM

Written by Pico, Tommy
Nature Poem follows Teebs--a young, queer, American Indian (or NDN) poet--who can't bring himself to write a nature poem. For the reservation-born, urban-dwelling hipster, the exercise feels stereotypical, reductive, and boring. He hates nature. He prefers city lights to the night sky. He'd slap a tree across the face.

Written by Howe, Susan
A collection in five parts, Susan Howe's electrifying new book opens with a preface by the poet that lays out some of Debths' inspirations: the art of Paul Thek, the Isabella Stewart Gardner collection, and early American writings; and in it she also addresses memory's threads and galaxies, "the rule of remoteness," and "the luminous story surrounding all things noumenal."
