Another Public Library book. All three books I have read by Matthea Harvey have been surreal, weird, funny, wonderful…. Consider:
You Never Seemed So Human
So we married in the UFO:
they didn’t know what we meant
when you said pony and
I whispered mountain
in the chilly Hall of Collectibles
Quick, small gems like this share space with fat prose poems, and some linear series involving Robo-Boy, or terror. Beautiful and strong all the way through. Grade: A
Modern Life is published by Graywolf, a publisher that seems to publish nothing but quality work.
I really like the cover. I looked to see where the artwork came from, and the cover art was done by the poet herself.
