Poetry roundup

October 18th, 2012

From Poetry Daily, “[It’s stringy      out here]” by Susan Wheeler. I’ll be ordering Meme thanks to this poem.

At The Atlantic.com, “Monica Lewinsky Thinks of Bill Clinton While Standing Naked in Front of a Hotel Mirror” by Julianna Baggot. Huh. Looks like I’ll be ordering Lizzie Borden in Love, too.

In Orion, “All Wet and Shine” by National Book Award finalist Cynthia Huntington.

I’m reading Meadowlands by Louise Glück, so here’s her “Telemachus’ Fantasy” from the same at AGNI Online.

Sylvia Plath’s “Daddy” turned fifty this week. You can listen to Plath herself reading it here.

Yesterday was Marie Howe’s birthday, so here’s “What the Living Do.” Which seems like a fine poem to close on.

Enjoy!
