GianmarcManzion: The new Kim Addonizio collection, my God. These poems absolutely nail our moment in America and in the world. The outrage is just and fearlessly expressed. I feel like these poems were written somewhere in that "tearing wind" at the end of Theodore Roethke's "In a Dark Time."

Kulambq: ~ Theodore Roethke, "The Waking" I am very fond of villanelle as a poetical form. It is perfectly suited for memorization. "The villanelle is a highly structured poem made up of five tercets followed by a quatrain, with two repeating rhymes and two refrains."
