Description


" Wolff's poems] are stylistic and tonal shapeshifters. Hip, contemplative, and dark and resistant to the hunky-dory, the New Agey, and the prescriptive, they're unnerving, funny, and occasionally subversive."--Bookforum

Poet, novelist, and Fence Books founder Rebecca Wolff's internal monologue made external in poetry is uncanny. Her musical and darkly funny fourth collection, One Morning--, spans language, culture, art history, love, passion, grief, consumerism, environmental devastation, and the ekphrastic experience of pop and high culture. She experiments with torque, energy, narrative--two steps ahead of herself with the reader on her heels.

From "Today Is a Good Day to Fly (Life Begins at)":

I'm really digging this blue sky
after so much rain
with my regular menstrual

cycle
my Def Jam

progesterone cream
the blow-in (in my pocket)
(ripped out)

from in-flight music magazine
"touching cloth"
like the Romantics do.
Insert jitney.
