Wave Books Warehouse Sale: Looking at Poets Writing about the Environment

Nature works its way into many poets’ works and ours are no different. Many of our writers have a very keen awareness about the environment and ecology. From CA Conrad's (Soma)tic Meditations to the poems of Eileen Myles and Hoa Nguyen, many Wave authors touch on themes of conservation and the importance of the environment. Noelle Kocot has been featured as a Poet for Living Waters while Jorge Carrera Andrade's and Joshua Beckman's poems often contemplate the natural world.

Check out these poets and more during our Warehouse Sale through June, selected titles are half priced and, as always, are shipped for free!

"don’t want to go to the well-reviewed movie…
or buy anything in any superb boutique
except
a slightly elliptical stoneware sugar bowl…
I don’t want to have coffee or not have coffee
or listen to This American Life on infidelity
which makes me tired b/c I don’t want to have sex w/
anyone just want my dear husband to
read me Game of Thrones by George RR Martin
while I lie in bed with a buckwheat eye pillow
are you scandalized by my admission of love
for genre fiction?"
