Richard Siken's Crush

It was hard to pick my favorite poems from Crush. The whole thing was fantastic.

My favorites:

Dirty Valentine

You Are Jeff

Straw House, Straw Dog

Oh yes, oh yes!!!! I discovered Crush about 2 years ago and I have 3 copies around the house so if I need a fix, there is one at hand. Brilliant, just brilliant.

And then I moved on to early James Tate. Try Selected Poems.

I want to lend Crush to a friend of mine, but I don't want to give it up! I might need to get a couple copies of this book myself.

I think I might have picked up Tate's Selected Poems at a used bookstore. I'll check. I've been listening to his audio poetry lately. The audience loves him (me too).

Don't lend Crush. You'll never see it again.
