a “Working Life” is the poetry collection that I’ve been waiting for. It’s the first Myles collection since Evolution in 2018 - it’s Myles at their most direct and their most wide somehow at the same time. The poems hold all of the dualities of our daily, working lives. They travel from small rooms when the pandemic was outside, to planes and drives across the changing landscape of America, to small moments inside cups of coffee and interactions with lovers or dogs. This is Myles really looking at our present moment and our environment being destroyed by greed, selfishness, individualism (capitalism) and meeting it with deep, radical noticing (care). Eileen Myles is anyone’s poet, the language is interested in vernacular and the way we share it with each other.
