Thanks to the editor at Puddinghouse's nice words about my two chapbooks and her suggestion that I send her some new work, I wrote a whole bunch of monster poems which I think are awesome. Got three coming out in Copper Nickel! Thanks Jen at Puddinghouse!
Circe, by Wright Baker "One day you simply appeared in your stupid boat," "Circe/ Mud Poems," Margaret Atwood, from You Are Happy I was alerted to this poem series by Estella Lauter's great chapter, "Margaret Atwood: Remythologizing Circe" from Women as Mythmakers. If you have the Norton Anthology of Modern and Contemporary Poetry, there is an excerpt in Vol. 2. And here is some interesting discussion of the text as well.
