For April: A Book A Day

This month, rather than writing a poem every day, I'm going to blog about a book of poetry that has been important to me, or that I've really admired.

First up: Mathias Svalina's Destruction Myth, a brilliant sequence of poems that continually rewrite "Creation Myth"s, finished off with one big, cataclysmic "Destruction Myth."

A longer review of this book is forthcoming elsewhere, so I won't say much more, except to say how much I admire Mathias's use of an interplay between absurdity and sincerity.
