Everything That Rises by Joseph Stroud

No word is wasted in Everything That Rises, Joseph Stroud’s sixth collection of poetry, with its masterfully rendered poems that reach across time and landscape. Stroud invokes a wide array of poets, including Rilke, Lorca, and Sappho, and includes translations of poems from Tu Fu and Pablo Neruda, among others. The poems are a reckoning with morality and a transcendent exploration of the strange and beautiful experience of living. - Billy

An American Sunrise by Joy Harjo

Joy Harjo is a poet, musician, daughter and mother and descendent, member of the Muscogee Creek Nation, and a poet laureate of the United States. She writes with urgent beauty of just anger and beautiful celebration, of past crimes (whose resonance is both felt and resurrected today), legacy, present joy, music and song, the immediacy of being human, and the specificity of being Native. Her words stick with the brightness of specific stars, of a greater whole winding its story still. - Jocelyn

Arias by Sharon Olds

When Sharon Olds sings truth, whether on the global or the familiar, in the resistance or in the bedroom, one cannot help but listen. Arias is her 15th collection, and its voice and range speak just as fully to her particular mind and our current humanity (or lack thereof) as ever. Smart, evocative, and exacting, her work is one of my favorite lyrical lodestars, both expanding my boundaries and attending me home. - Melinda

Feed by Tommy Pico

Reading Feed feels like receiving a meandering text message from your funniest friend or a tweet without a character limit. Tommy Pico’s genius is in the way he is able to catch the reader off guard with uproariously funny lines that lead into serious philosophical quandaries, such as the difference between loneliness and being alone, or the possibility of intelligent life on other planets. Feed is raunchy, irreverent, haunted by the contemporary moment, and reaches for profundity. - Billy
