This month for Poetry 365 we’re featuring Kim Addonizio’s eclectic new book Mortal Trash. Filled with allusions to classic poets such as William Shakespeare and Gerard Manley Hopkins, this seventh collection from the prolific National Book Award finalist mingles witty musings on lust and aging with weightier concerns about terrorism and global warming. Vivid, jaded, and linguistically agile, Mortal Trash shows why the San Francisco Chronicle described Addonizio as “a master of compressed intensity who always nails the emotional image.” So don’t miss this edgy new book, sample a poem below, and make sure to stop back next month for Poetry 365.
