"The very existence of poetry should make us laugh. What is it all about? What is it for?"
“El subtítulo ‘Modelo para armar’ podría llevar a creer que las
diferentes partes del relato, separadas por blancos, se proponen como piezas permutables.”
Thank You has been with me since I first read it forty-five or so years ago. I love it!
I like the boiling water poem and I think there's an anxiety poem that's kind of similar. Both are longish, but not booklength longish. Very funny. My other favorite is When the Sun Tries to Go On, which I always misremember as When the Sun Refuses to Go Down.I guess that's three favorites.
"Variations on a Theme by WCW" and "One Train May Hide Another."
Does it count that _Wishes, Lies, and Dreams_ was seminal? _Rose, Where Did You Get That Red_ only slightly less so.
Or your favorite book...
Hi Jonathan, I like _When the Sun Tries to Go On__Impressions of Africa_and I am assigning a new favorite _Making Your Own Days_ for a class next semester.-kaplan
"The Circus" .
Jordan has the same favorite as I do.
"Cecilia" is my favourite Koch poem - I think it's part of a larger work called "Collected Poems" or "Collected Proses." In fact, I like Koch the miniaturist best of all. He perfected the one-line poem as a genre.
"Some general instructions", "Thank you" and "Variations on a theme..."
Witty and charming, while remaining magnetically mysterious, elusive and opaque, one of my very favorite book-length poems is*When The Sun Tries To Go On.* It remains a marvel of its type for its admirable inexhaustibility and mock-epic scale.
