This week I also finished The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison. Incredible story of inherited trauma/oppression/desire. The last two chapters destroyed me. It felt important to bear witness to this story, to watch and take it in and learn. And the language was stunning throughout. #read78 #books #fiction #tonimorrison
This week for my #read78 #poetry book, I read Jack McCarthy’s Drunks and Other Poems of Recovery. It’s been a while since I felt so moved by a book of poetry, and so honored to have been invited into a story. It reminded me that I write in hopes of reaching folks the way this book reached me. #books #writebloody

OH HEY NEW ENGLAND.
Do you want to see the three poets above (Megan Falley, Derrick Brown, and Miles Walser) read you poems in the same night?! It can happen. September 10th. Do you have a space to hold all this magic? Tell us what venue we should perform at and we will tell you all our secrets and poems. And all our secret poems.

A few days ago I tore through Haruki Murakami’s After Dark. I love his work, and this book did not disappoint. Taking place all in one night, it is a magical examination of the opposites/extremes in our world and how we take on the task of creating a balance. (That being said, my actual reaction to this book was more of a uuuugggghhhhyessssssss.) #harukimurakami #read78 #books #fiction
For this weeks #read78 #poetry book I read Useless Landscape or A Guide For Boys by D.A. Powell. His work was incredibly detail-saturated, and a lot of the poems really asked to be sat with and read a number of times. It was a stunning mix of lush language and crude/harsh truths. Definitely recommend, #books #graywolfpress #dapowell
