Paul Guest's My Index of Slightly Horrifying Knowledge

My favorites in this book:

Bad Mood: This poem really captures the bad mood. Some days just feel like everything is wrong.

Valentine: I like the dreaminess of the poem, and love how he describes himself on the ocean floor with a shell and claws.

My Crush: The description of pain in the body as shimmering, and the "spines full of wire" were beautiful. There is a gorgeous longing in this.

Job: This poem is really funny, and sad. I love poems about working in an office.
