God Was Right
Published by Ugly Duckling Presse
God Was Right collects poems that take the form of arguments, essays, and letters.
The title poem argues that God was right to make us love cats (and then watch them die); another categories the way women like to be kissed; one proposes a sex ed that takes into account persuasion and pleasure; another argues men should write bad poetry; a letter tries to put friendship about love; a five-paragraph essay tries to disarm heartbreak via analysis; etc. These poems/essays are hyperbolic attempts to write something adequate to a feeling.
