Poetry Friday! The bestest Friday of them all!
Without any more preamble, let's luxuriate in the gorgeous rhythms of Mitchell Parry's "Evening Song" (from his collection Imperfect Penance).
About Imperfect Penance:
- "Mitchell Parry’s imaginative, sometimes hallucinogenic, response to Georg Trakl's hothouse family and his intimate life and times is a gut-wrenching read. Imperfect Penance takes us through a journey of incestuous desire, drug addiction, war, and suicide. What to say about poems drenched in the 'green dreams of chloroform'? Harrowing yes, but fascinating, too. Darkly brilliant." — Patricia Young
