I Was The Jukebox Poems

by Sandra Beasley, I Was The Jukebox Poems Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download I Was The Jukebox Poems books, In I Was the Jukebox, Sandra Beasley eschews the speaker-as-poet convention and unleashes a collection teeming with the inanimate, the anachronistic, and the animal kingdom. She boldly channels figures from wartime and mythological culture; in 'Osiris Speaks' the Egyptian god gains new life as a vagabond: 'I left my heart in San Francisco. / I left my viscera in the Netherlands.' But even the most surreal images always keep one foot in everyday America: 'I left my liver on the 42 Line,' Osiris goes on to admit, 'headed from Farragut Square to the White House.' The nucleus of this collection includes many poems composed during a draft-a-day process referred to on the Web as NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month), founded by DC-area poet Maureen Thorson and coordinated to coincide with National Poetry Month.

Download I Was The Jukebox Poems books, “[Beasley’s] lightness works best when it dapples her darkness—and when her darkness, as it often does, feels truly deep.”—Abigail Deutsch, Poetry The winner of the 2009 Barnard Women Poets Prize—“These poems are fresh, crisp, and muscular. They are decisive and fearless. Every object, icon, or historical moment has a soul with a voice. In these poems these soulful ones elbow their way to the surface of the page, smartly into the contemporary now.”—Joy Harjo, prize citation from “The Piano Speaks” For an hour I forgot my fat self, my neurotic innards, my addiction to alignment. For an hour I forgot my fear of rain. For an hour I was a salamander shimmying through the kelp in search of shore, and under his fingers the notes slid loose from my belly in a long jellyrope of eggs that took root in the mud.

Made To Explode Poems

by Sandra Beasley, Made To Explode Poems Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Made To Explode Poems books, With lacerating honesty, technical mastery, and abiding compassion, Made to Explode offers volatile poems for our volatile times. In her fourth collection, acclaimed poet Sandra Beasley interrogates the landscapes of her life in decisive, fearless, and precise poems that fuse intimacy and intensity. She probes memories of growing up in Virginia, in Thomas Jefferson’s shadow, where liberal affluence obscured and perpetuated racist aggressions, but where the poet was simultaneously steeped in the cultural traditions of the American South. Her home in Washington, DC, inspires prose poems documenting and critiquing our capital’s institutions and monuments. In these poems, Ruth Bader Ginsberg shows up at the Folger Shakespeare Theatre’s show of Kiss Me Kate; Albert Einstein is memorialized on Constitution Avenue, yet was denied clearance for the Manhattan Project; as temperatures cool, a rain of spiders drops from the dome of the Jefferson Memorial. A stirring suite explores Beasley’s affiliation with the disability community and her frustration with the ways society codes disability as inferiority. Quintessentially American and painfully timely, these poems examine legacies of racism and whiteness, the shadow of monuments to a world we are unmaking, and the privileges the poet is working to untangle. Made to Explode boldly reckons with Beasley’s roots and seeks out resonance in society writ large.

Count The Waves Poems

by Sandra Beasley, Count The Waves Poems Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Count The Waves Poems books, “Beasley uses humor and surprise like a scythe, cutting to the root of a matter.”—Washington Post In Count the Waves, Sandra Beasley turns her eclectic imagination to the heart's pursuits. A man and a woman sit at the same dinner table, an ocean of worry separating them. An iceberg sets out to dance. A sword swallower ponders his dating prospects. "The vessel is simple, a rowboat among yachts," the poet observes in "Ukulele." "No one hides a Tommy gun in its case. / No bluesman runs over his uke in a whiskey rage." Beasley's voice is pithy and playful, with a ferocious intelligence that invites comparison to both Sylvia Plath and Dorothy Parker. In one of six signature sestinas, she warns, "You must not use a house to build a home, / and never look for poetry in poems." The collection’s centerpiece is a haunting sequence that engages The Traveler's Vade Mecum, an 1853 compendium of phrases for use by mail, telegraph, or the enigmatic “Instantaneous Letter Writer." Assembled over ten years and thousands of miles, these poems illuminate how intimacy is lost and gained during our travels. Decisive, funny, and as compassionate as she is merciless, Beasley is a reckoning force on the page.

The Cerebral Jukebox

by Susan Margulies Kalish, The Cerebral Jukebox Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Cerebral Jukebox books, In the Cerebral Jukebox we find a collection of urban poetry that vividly describes a New York City of days past and links it with the city of today. During a yearlong sabbatical from teaching, New York City native Susan Margulies Kalish began creating a volume of autobiographical and confessional verse that details her fascinating story. It's a story of growing up in a middle-class housing development on the Lower East Side of Manhattan during the baby boom after World War II; Stuyvesant Town: where one hundred look alike buildings became her midcity haven. While describing a childhood spirit fed by Orange Humorettes, fifteen-cent pizza slices, greasy square knishes from Koburn's Deli, and penny candy, Kalish eloquently captures her memories while transporting others on a personal journey through her life in New York — a city where neighborhoods reflect an ever-changing world through images, sounds, and morphing landscapes. Kalish's poetry illustrates a city that today seems more valuable, clear, defined, colorful, and alive than ever before ... with even less to be taken for granted. Complete with the author's family and neighborhood photographs, the Cerebral Jukebox shares unforgettable recollections from one woman's life as she matures from childhood to adulthood, carefully observing life around her.

Crows In The Jukebox

by Mike James, Crows In The Jukebox Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Crows In The Jukebox books, In his wonderful new collection, Crows in the Jukebox, Mike James explores among many topics, his hardscrabble patriarchy, marriage and family relationships, and the clarity and persistence of nature. As in his other work, he often surprises the reader with jarring quips and closures as in "Talking with Allen Ginsberg, in a Dream:" "I can fit you in my shirt pocket," or the remarkable metaphor for the artistic creative process, "Swimming in the Rain:" "when she swims she's always alone/no one who watches is with her." This volume establishes James as a poet of the first rank, one who swims alone. ~Tim Peeler, author of L2: A Poetry Novel
