Darling: Poems (Paperback)

Darling: Poems By Honor Moore Cover Image
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


The second collection from the poet Honor Moore, Darling is the kind of poetry that refuses to stay quiet, full of moments so gorgeous and brave you can't resist their power. From the very first pages, there is an inescapable intensity. Hard and melodic, chilly with loss and burning with sensual heat, Moore's words have a profound veracity as she takes on subjects such as longing, death, and sexual desire with a deeply passionate consciousness. Every poem in Darling is radiant with glassy precision. A woman's hair is the color of raw wood, a dead friend is remembered by how he placed objects in a room, two lovers fall together like answers. Hers are effortless metaphors that pull at your breath, and her ease in conjuring them is simply stunning. Moore's poems always generate excitement, appearing in dozens of publications, including The Paris Review, Ploughshares, Open City, Conjunctions, and American Poetry Review.
