‘Hope & Anchor’ By Joshua Corey

hopeandanchor

I finished the chapbook that I bought at the Innisfree Poetry Bookstore. I used to read Corey’s blog (I didn’t stop because of an issue with it; just don’t read some many poetry blogs anymore), but this was my first, serious intro to his poetry.

They collection contains formal prose poems. By formal, I mean that he breaks it up into structured stanzas to lend a touch of formalism.

The poems are very sad and mournful. Almost a bit of a low key jeremiad. Anyway, highly recommended.
