Like an embedded journalist, Patrick Woodcock writes his poetry from front traces of expertise. From towns reeling from the trauma of siege conflict to the stifling warmth and politics of the Arabian Peninsula to the darkest corners of the South American rain woodland, Woodcock's poems undergo witness to a global that's both fast and remote... and much extra complicated than we regularly think. In his new ebook constantly Die earlier than You mom, Woodcock takes us around the world -- recording no matter what he can. Like a photographer utilizing the changeable lenses of photograph and idiom, he transforms all that he sees right into a searing remark on human disasters either private and non-private, these of our societies, our politics and our religions, in addition to his personal mess ups as a son.

I am not hollow, hollow. I am sharper than the half-yawn insult. I am of a mesmerizing raw material. I am a vulture reminiscing, circling, reminiscing, circling. A hemisphere of blood and bone, I am unmovable. 6. Suicide dogs, Christ, I understand your progression, your undarkening eyes. I’ve imagined coaches and horse dung and the scraggy-headed succession of order. I’ve pawed at Him for years while the roaches after flying through my window stopped beating their wings and wondered acoustically — fleeting?

A village of perpetual daylight, where the air was always cold. You can read a man’s thoughts by the way he breathes, they used to say. Or, never look into a woman’s eyes, her mouth shapes the real answers. And it was true. You could understand villagers simply from the shapes that came from their mouths.
