Carol Frost"The darker perceptions and unheard of phrases in Dear Apocalypse bring us a strange solacestrange and familiar as the elemental world. If earth’s evidence breaks the heartsoil’s toxicity, soul’s hat crowning a parking meter, airs ficklewe might still 'come to love / this waking life'coltsfoot, deer piss, phoebes, and the 'glimpses / of the things we might, with work, become.' The poems are beautifully crafted, the truths contingent, hard-wonfor that all the purer. A miraculous book."
The debut collection of poems by K. A. Hays.
What People are saying about this
Speer Morgan"K. A. Hays’s poems show a fascination with the dark processes at work even in seemingly pleasant patches of American landscape. Like Melville, she finds a spiritual power in the violence of nature."
Katie Ford"Exquisite, masterful poems filled with the last beauties and new horrors of a dying earth . . . Hays is a poet we cannot do without."
