This edition of “Incidental Noyes” comes from Ellen Hagan, whose collection of poetry HEMISPHERE just published. Library Journal was led to say that “we see that time doesn’t so much stretch out but circle us in, as reflected in a beautifully compressed language (“be the peacock & the treble, be/ the tremor & the starved”) that doesn’t so much capture as intensify.” Enjoy this intensely energetic, explicit (if every way) playlist. Be prepared to dance!
