A cloudless spring day. This is what I feel when I think about...

Book Review “Colder: A Collection of Poetry & Prose”, River Dixon

Winter. Somewhere in North Dakota. River: Do you know what I’d ask Santa if I’d ever met him? Dixon: Hot babe? River: I’d say “I want COLDER”… Dixon: Are you mad, it is already -16,6 F!

When Marianne Moore wrote a poem titled “Poetry,” she began it with the words: “I, too, dislike it.” Making a poem was never quite...
