poetry, daily: 5

I'm reading Sharp Stars by Sharon Bryan right now. I like it for its play, especially its wordplay. I like its sense of space. I like how trim the poems feel. They feel so crafted. Not impetuous, though they do feel ready, like a runner on the blocks. You can read about the book on the publisher's (BOA Editions) site, read a review in Rattle here, and buy it at Powell's here. You could wait a few months and read my review of it, too...more on that later.
