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."

HYMNS & QUALMS: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS AND TRANSLATIONS

Written by Cole, Peter
"[Peter Cole's] poetry is perhaps most remarkable for its combination of intellectual rigor with delight in surface, for how its prosody returns each abstraction to the body, linking thought and breath, metaphysics and musicality. Religious, erotic, elegiac, pissed off--the affective range is wide and the forms restless."--Ben Lerner, BOMB
