The Poem She Didn't Write And Other PoemseBook - 2015
In her first full collection in a decade, Olena Kalytiak Davis revivifies language and makes love offerings to her beloved reader. With a heightened post-confessional directness, she addresses lost love, sexual violence, and the confrontations of aging. In her characteristic syntactical play, sly slips of meaning, and all-out feminism, Davis hyperconsciously erases the rulebook in this memorable collection. From "The Poem She Didn't Write": began when she stopped began in winter and, like everything else, at first, just waited for spring in spring noticed there were lilac branches, but no desire, no need to talk to any angel, to say: sky, dooryard, _______,when summer arrived there was more, but not much nothing really worth noting and then it was winter again-nothing had changed: sky, dooryard, ________, white, frozen was the lake and the lagoon, some froze the ocean(now you erase that) (you cross that out)and so on and so forth . . .
