Synopsis:

Honored as one of "Nine Great Poetry Books of 2014" The New Yorker

The Poem She Didn’t Write is a breakup book, full of the kinds of invective and taunts honed by a person who has spent, as all of us have now spent, infinite hours online. Its complex tones arise from the poet’s wanting equally to seduce and to repel a lover whose deepening silence only provokes rhetorical escalation. The effect can be like reading e-mails in someone’s drafts folder but who wouldn’t want to read Davis’s drafts?" Dan Chiasson, The New Yorker

Davis’ first full collection in a decade should be stamped with the warning, Buckle up!,’ because entering this writer’s mind is one wild ride of digression, mutation, and syntactical and typographical experimentation Davis has clearly put the poetic rule book through a shredder, and there’s much to appreciate about that.” Booklist

"There is an eerie precision to her work like the delicate discernment of a brain surgeon's scalpel that renders each moment in both its absolute clarity and ultimate transitory fragility." Rita Dove

In her first full collection in a decade, Olena Kalytiak Davis revivifies language and makes love offerings to her beloved reader. With a heightened post-confessional directness, she addresses lost love, sexual violence, and the confrontations of aging. In her characteristic syntactical play, sly slips of meaning, and all-out feminism, Davis hyperconsciously erases the rulebook in this memorable collection.

From "The Poem She Didn't Write":

began
when she stopped

began in winter and, like everything else, at first, just waited for spring
in spring noticed there were lilac branches, but no desire,
no need to talk to any angel, to say: sky, dooryard, _______,
when summer arrived there was more, but not much
nothing really worth noting
and then it was winter again nothing had changed: sky, dooryard, ________, white,
frozen was the lake and the lagoon, some froze the ocean
(now you erase that) (you cross that out)
and so on and so forth . . .
