This month for Poetry 365 we’re featuring Heather Christle’s nimble new volume What Is Amazing. Following 2011’s inventively quirky The Trees the Trees, the jubilat editor’s third collection expands her formal range while retaining the voracious curiosity and playfulness found in her earlier work. Hip, irreverent, and darkly funny, these 49 poems “feel like pages from a secret notebook” as they explore the world with a sly mixture of childlike wonder and adult gravitas. So check out this excellent new collection, sample a poem below, and make sure to stop back next month for Poetry 365.
