This month’s collection is featuring five exceptionally strong voices including Terrance Hayes‘ sonnet (a sonnet in a series of fourteen), for technology, one of his past and future assassins, Iraq veteran Carlo André’s trying to understand the enormity of war, heather hughes‘ respect and concern for the role of science (is it for sale?), Joseph Massey’s wishful
thought I found a way
to stop thinking—
and Carl Phillips asking How far is instinct from a thing/like belief?
At what point is believing so close/ to knowing, that any difference between the two isn’t worth the fuss,/ finally?
These voices make up some of the many reasons why poetry exists.
We’re pleased here at poems2go to share and promote this resounding chorale. Stronger together.
