The Philosopher's Club The Laurie who purchased this muscular yet slim volume of poetry years ago still appreciates Addonizio s in your face confessions and imagery Addonizio and Sharon Olds, who I hear like an echo in a conch shell fueled the Laurie writing poetry through the 1980s, 90s, 00s, and even 2010s But somehow that poet has slipped deeper into the dark water The poet who currently inhabits me wants a lighter texture, adiaphanous look at the world The poet inside me now wants to escape this body The Laurie who purchased this muscular yet slim volume of poetry years ago still appreciates Addonizio s in your face confessions and imagery Addonizio and Sharon Olds, who I hear like an echo in a conch shell fueled the Laurie writing poetry through the 1980s, 90s, 00s, and even 2010s But somehow that poet has slipped deeper into the dark water The poet who currently inhabits me wants a lighter texture, adiaphanous look at the world The poet inside me now wants to escape this body rather than to celebrate it Sigh This poet feels a little old, not wise enough, and vaguely dissatisfied with the physical habitat And this poet is no longer interested, much, in a sexual connection Has she become a crone Does she want, now, to wallow in nature poetry Oh, let her do what she wants, and let Addonizio s harsh cries exist, too, in their paper wood Kim has such a gritty point of view, and it really polishes her poetry into something that even those who don t get poetry will understand and resonate with I took a couple of private classes from Kim in the 90 s and just getting to know her a little bit helped me to see that her writing very clearly reflects who she is upfront, straightforward, good hearted and really present to the detail of everyday life I never get tired of reading her work.
