I have 8 creative goals this year, and behind door 7 is reading a book of poetry every month. Want to join me? You can see what book I’ll be reading each month here. March’s book was Siphon, Harbor by Brooklyn Copeland. Join me in April reading Aimless Love by Billy Collins.
So. Siphon, Harbor. It was a little too post-modern for me to really connect with, though there were some sweet moments.
The title of the novel comes from a line from a very sexy poem called “Seall,” which I think is the last name of her boyfriend.
There was an interesting poem about subjective/objective-ness, which this grammar nerd found intriguing:
In any pair
one does as if doing’s gracious–
as if sacrifice–
Another line I really liked was this:
To this day, to me all
silver smells red.
Will you like Siphon, Harbor? Maybe! Give it a try. It’s such a fast read– no joke, it will take you fewer than thirty minutes. Let me know what you think!
And join me next month in reading Billy Collins!
