this is the most important thing in the world
I say aloud to everything
In her first book of poetry since 2007, legendary poet, critic, and novelist Eileen Myles creates poet and poem anew as she pushes the boundaries of her craft ever closer to the enigmatic core. Snowflake finds the poet awash in an extended and distressed landscape mediated by technology and its distortion of time and space. In different streets, the poet returns home, to the familiar world of human connection.
Two books meet as one: more Eileen Myles, more indelible connection, more fleeting ecstasy.
