Sorry I Wrote So Many Sad Poems Today, by Tracy Dimond

Were there any justice in this world, Tracy Dimond’s arresting poetry collection would’ve been as much an internet hot topic as the Marie Calloway’s “Adrien Brody” short story. Not that Dimond’s writing is anything like Calloway’s—Dimond refreshingly prefers the plurality of emotional intensities over the affect of meta-narrative reportage—but she’s thematically exploring a similar terrain: the interior life of a young woman in the early 21st century. Dimond’s compact Sorry I Wrote So Many Sad Poems Today moves from confessional to funny to distressing in a few lines, conveying big feelings in simple, direct language that is much harder to pull off than it looks. Bravo.
