      Poets Dobby Gibson & Zachary Schomburg

      The poems in Dobby Gibson’s new book transform the everyday into the revelatory. Little Glass Planet (Graywolf) exults in the strangeness of the known and unknowable world. In poems set as far afield as Mumbai and Marfa, Texas, Gibson maps disparate landscapes, both terrestrial and subliminal, to reveal the drama of the quotidian. Elegiac, funny, and candid, Little Glass Planet is a kind of manual for paying attention to a world that is increasingly engineered to distract us from our own humanity. In Zachary Schomburg's own words, Pulver Maar (Black Ocean) "is a collection of poems written between 2014 and 2018. Some of the poems are long, and some of them are short." These are every bit the poems you've come to dream of, long for, and expect from Schomburg, where clouds fall in love and Bob the Buoy bobs in the center of the sea.
