Oh my god I am fucking weeping Like mostly BECAUSE OF THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The poem itself but the f u c k i n g acknowledgements I m going to cry again just thinking about them Your breath is so much than your breath Your body so many bodies Your poems given to you The cities inside us all of whom spoke us thought us dreamt us dream us into beingThis joy ning is not without a little ambivalence sometimes in the world destroying horseshit capitalist nightmare fantasy of the individual Oh shit I ve never made anything by myself Oh shit I maybe am not a myself Oh shit I definitely am not a myself Oh shit it s all been given to me It s all been given to me Oh O Thank youA poem s practice the practice of poetry must always defy the logics of property By which I mean practicing the truth of gift and gratitude Robin Wall Kimmerer thank you My breath is made possible by the breath of others My breath is the breath of others My is not my and how could it ever be And who would want it so We talking about practice We owe each other everythingI want to honor the mycelial way poems are made but not only poems Lives Our lives each other s lives I m sayingand And everyone I ve ever talked about trees with Or thought about trees with Or looked into trees with Or planted trees with Or loved trees with And every tree that s ever held me or listened to me or cared for me or fed me or cooled me or would Every tree I mean Bound in gratitudeI just want to weep eternally Especially because recently soooo many of my poems have Ross Gay just seeeeeeping into and blooming out of them Truly there is not and never was a my and who would want it so I could also cry about the fact that in the whole 96 pages of the poem there are only SEVEN periods and one semicolon all of which are contained inon only 4 pages The a u d a c i t y My favorite Ross Gay poem The Opening is also so winding and discursive so I was v on board with all this poem asked of me Still I know I will read it again I know this review is basically not even about the poem itself but god give me a second to Recover from the acknowledgements I can only handle So Much ok I will try to Come Back to it
