9781933517391: Sunny Wednesday

Often breathtaking ... this latest collection from Kocot intersperses frantic images with hauntingly simple and loss-laden outcries. Throughout, there is the poet's thwarted longing for an understanding that cannot come: "all poets and poetry elude me,/ especially myself and my own"; Kocot's speaker--a voice simultaneously adorable, helpless and deeply brave--is both obsessed with and frustrated by process: "See, in a poem, things actually/ have to be doing things,/ not just floating around." ... Kocot's most lucid moments achieve a kind of visionary clarity ("The waters are very simple today./ Hospital blue, in error of twilight"), a beautiful refusal to accept the inevitable ("Listen, I said it before, die/ and come back as fire") and inklings of the kind of loss that could yield such a powerful, almost overflowing book: "I wait to go to you,/ smoking and breaking curses under/ the Jackson Pollock fuck you moon." --Publishers Weekly

From Publishers Weekly:

Often breathtaking, at times impenetrable, this latest collection from Kocot (Poem for the End of Time) intersperses frantic images with hauntingly simple and loss-laden outcries. Throughout, there is the poet's thwarted longing for an understanding that cannot come: all poets and poetry elude me,/ especially myself and my own; Kocot's speaker—a voice simultaneously adorable, helpless and deeply brave—is both obsessed with and frustrated by process: See, in a poem, things actually/ have to be doing things,/ not just floating around. While poems go by without offering a foothold (Trapezoidal sleep, spell-check aflame with saints,/ roseate silo, the arrows are dark), Kocot's most lucid moments achieve a kind of visionary clarity (The waters are very simple today./ Hospital blue, in error of twilight), a beautiful refusal to accept the inevitable (Listen, I said it before, die/ and come back as fire) and inklings of the kind of loss that could yield such a powerful, almost overflowing book: I wait to go to you,/ smoking and breaking curses under/ the Jackson Pollock fuck you moon.
