A book of poems that reads like a two week vacation at the shore.

A book of poems that reads like a two week vacation at the shore. A book of poems that reads like a two week vacation at the shore.

The second book of poems by the author of Every Substance Clothed (1995) takes much of its inspiration from the North Carolina coastline, where Halme often lingers on the beach and, as the title poem makes clear, where she enjoys the solitude of staying in a lighthouse. The short lyric poems in this fine collection celebrate autonomy, and the virtues of a life unfettered by children and objects. "Autotomy,"" one of the weaker poems, directly mocks ""breeders,"" and boasts of the poet's breasts, grown for ""pleasure.

Select Format: Hardcover. ISBN13:9781889330204. Release Date:November 1998.

I can’t stand my own mind. America when will we end the human war? Go fuck yourself with your atom bomb. I don’t feel good don’t bother me. I won’t write my poem till I’m in my right mind. America when will you be angelic? When will you take off your clothes? When will you look at yourself through the grave? When will you be worthy of your million Trotskyites? America why are your libraries full of tears? America when will you send your eggs to India?

In Drift and Pulse, her third book of poems, Kathleen Halme is fascinated with the domain where matter is experienced as mind. Drawing upon brain science, anthropology, and biology, these poems take aim at the big questions of form and death, how we "sublime and di. The persistent "longing for shapes as elegant as instinct," the rituals and fictions we invent to meet the needs of a ceaselessly revised universe animate the poems.
