A double book by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Rae Armantrout
What will we call the last generation before the looming end times? With Finalists Rae Armantrout suggests one option. Brilliant and irascible, playful and intense, Armantrout nails the current moment's debris fields and super computers, its sizzling malaise and confusion, with an exemplary immensity of heart and a boundless capacity for humor. The poems in this book find (and create) beauty in midst of the ongoing crisis.
What's to like if not contrast?
Shadows beneath the model's sharp
cheekbones, her ample yet precise lips.
Clean lines separating bounty from its opposite.
This is not what I want
These eyes on the hypothetical
