This piece by Kelly Mueller, titled “Queen,” is one of the more glorious pieces from the astonishing series she created in response to the poems I wrote for Larval Songs. I’m going to leave “Queen” here at the top of this blog, as motivation and reminder. Long may she rule.

At some point, I really am going to use this as a blog. I just need to find the time to write things worth posting. In the meantime, I just want to say that this is the best book I’m reading at the moment:
Astounding formal inventiveness, profound lyric imagination, extraordinary emotional power in almost every poem. The kind of book that makes me want to write more poems. Read it, readers.
