Poem of the Week
May 21, 2017 to May 28, 2017

January
by Hoa Nguyen

Once again, our Poem of the Week choice spotlights work from the 2017 Griffin Poetry Prize shortlist. This week's selection comes from Hoa Nguyen's vibrant collection Violet Energy Ingots. Among its many fascinating attributes, how Nguyen refashions language, often swiftly over the course of a brief poem like "January", is simultaneously an exhilarating pleasure and an inviting challenge to the reader.
