Weaving Sundown in a Scarlet Light by Joy Harjo

Poet Laureate Joy Harjo has selected 50 of her best poems from the past 50 years for this truly evocative and intimate collection of poetry. With her attention finely tuned to heritage, femininity, and our relationship with nature and sense of place, Harjo takes us on a journey through her youth as she discovers her own voice, up into her adulthood as she contemplates the deeply human truths of the present. Heart-wrenching and hopeful, this collection is unforgettable.

The World Keeps Ending, and the World Goes On by Franny Choi

This world simply does not deserve Franny Choi. And by that I mean, where would we be without her poetry—anomalous as it sometimes is? In this latest collection, Choi considers the singularity of death, the science fiction of survival, the anachronism of love amidst the end of the world. Each poem is a life raft and also a knife. This is the book you hand someone who tells you, “poetry can’t change the world.”

Magnolia: Poems by Nina Mingya Powles

Cerebral, gorgeous, and personal, this collection is one that you might feel deep in your gut. It can be hard to believe this is the author’s debut poetry collection. Powles is an award-winning writer of many forms, and their poetry is sure to join the ranks of their other writing. Read “Night Train to Anyang,” my favorite in this collection.

Alive at the End of the World by Saeed Jones

“The end of the world leaked music like radiation, and we loved the neon echo.” In this devastating yet illuminating collection, Jones asserts that we are living through small apocalypses every day. He pulls no punches in his naming of racism, violence, and power, and his lyricism and unflinching honesty make this collection utterly necessary.
