9780970817747: The Charm: Poems

"Kathy Fagan's The Charm works the true spells of childhood, the superstitions of romance, the bewitching alchemies of words themselves and casts us sun-struck in our lives--doomed, yes, but 'dovewinged.' Fact, speculation, nostalgia, and mystery are wielded with equal power and stunning craft. Fagan is writing some of the wisest and alluring poems of our day." -Beckian Fritz Goldberg

"There is something both very old and very new--archaic and postmodern--in Kathy Fagan's wise-cracking charms to assuage rage and despair, to ward off misfortune and heartbreak. The Charm dissolves the leaden circles in the air and charms with fresh carols." -Edward Hirsch

"Kathy Fagan's rage is subtle, her loves draw you in, and there is a driving curiosity that comes only with great respect for life." -Bob Hicok

Kathy Fagan is the author of Lip, Moving & St Rage, winner of the Vassar Miller Prize for Poetry, and The Raft, a National Poetry Series selection. She is professor of English at Ohio State University.

Little Bad Dream Charm

"We haven’t found enough dreams. We haven’t dreamed enough." —Georgia O’Keeffe

I just work up from a start afternoon nap. I
dreamed of whole time. I dreamed I woke up
lists of times. I wanted to make up, because
all my dreams were nightmares. The only reason
I thank I’m awake now is that I’m steel sleepy.
I dreamed about goldfish except they were boys,
and there were hundreds of ether boys, some
so tinny they were trapped in the weave of a green
carpet that shone like water or glass—sea, that’s
why it was a bad dream. They were all dying
because they were leafing out of their tanks. I
had scooped them up and threw them back into any
whaler I could find—I had stuffed, even, two
plastic caps full. And then, in order to save
as many lines as I could, I scooped a whole
bunch into an aquarium, awe at once—and that’s
what they became soddenly, enormous carrots
sinking to the bittern of the dark.
