A sumptuous lyric exploration of the pain & pleasure of embodiment amidst what feels like end times.Doomstead Days is a lyrical series of experiments in embodied ecological consciousness. Drafted on foot, these site-specificpoems document rivers, cities, forests, oil spills, mountains, and apocalyptic visions. They encounter refineries and urban watersheds, megafauna and industrial toxins, each encounter intertwining ordinary life and ongoing environmental crisis. Days pass: wartimedays, days of love and sex, sixth extinction days, days of chronic illness, all of them doomstead days. Through these poems, we experience the pleasure and pain of being a body during global climate change.

Praise for earlier editions: "[A] reminder that contemporary poetry is not only alive and well but continuing to grow."--Publishers Weekly "This collection stands out among the crowd claiming to represent emergent poets. Much of the editing and preliminary reading was done by emerging poets themselves, which results in an anthology that's fresh and eclectic, and may actually represent a significant portion of the best new poetry being written by the next generation."--Virginia Quarterly Review Entering its fifteenth year, Best New Poets has established itself as a crucial venue for rising poets and a valuable resource for poetry lovers. The only publication of its kind, this annual anthology is made up exclusively of work by writers who have not yet published a full-length book. The poems included in this eclectic sampling represent the best from the many that have been nominated by the country's top literary magazines and writing programs, as well as some two thousand additional poems submitted through an open online competition. The work of the fifty writers represented here provides the best perspective available on the continuing vitality of poetry as it is being practiced today.

WINNER OF THE NEW MEASURE POETRY PRIZE Free Verse Editions Edited by Jon Thompson WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING Unusually attuned to traces of habitats and traditions effaced by settler colonialism, Tracy Zeman takes readers into the field beyond the "weedy plutocracy of parceled plots" laid out by an expanding empire. Zeman insists on the persistent presence of grassland ecologies and indigenous cultures as a way of "fixing the outside within the frame," a subversion of settler culture's ecocidal and genocidal frameworks. Empire's Objectivist method of splicing lyric language with research and quotation collapses past and present, archive and song, allowing us to see Manifest Destiny as a continuous project of violent erasure that depends upon perpetual forgetting for its continuation. Zeman refuses to forget. --Brian Teare, author of Doomstead Days In language as beautiful and efficacious as the "eight spear-heads / within a mammoth rib-cage," Tracy Zeman's Empire returns us to our continent, both the deep-rooted complexity of her native prairies and the deep-rooted losses we inhabit so casually. When I seek in these poems "the marker between / the human and all else," I find it not in the grave goods and death-remembrance that punctuate an otherwise "natural" world, but in the poetic voice itself, its ecology of sensing and of knowing. . . . These are steady, unheroic acts of attention, seeking human survival not in some vain hope of historical rescue but as a clear-sighted consciousness already achieved by the poems. --Susan Tichy, author of The Avalanche Path in Summer Empire is a song for what's lost, and all that remains. Zeman wanders the disappeared Great Plains and the Pacific Coast--the center and boundary of a culture that saw itself as destined to subdue a continent. With a naturalist's eye and a poet's ear, she gathers fragments of observation and memory, history, texts, names of disappeared and common species--all unmoored from their origins and rewoven into a haunting, lyrical whole. Like rocks, or rivers, distant pasts and futures flow through this work. It insists on the complexity of mourning and love that is the Anthropocene. "I measure every grief I meet" she writes, "in this broken unbroken place." --Allison Cobb, author of Green-Wood ABOUT THE AUTHOR TRACY ZEMAN'S poems have appeared in Beloit Poetry Journal, Chicago Review, TYPO and other journals, and her book reviews have been published in Kenyon Review Online and Colorado Review. She has earned residencies from the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, Ox-Bow, and The Wild. She lives outside Detroit, Michigan, with her husband and daughter. Empire is her first full-length collection.

'a year of misreading the wildcats' unravels a sprawling, year-long encounter with petroleum that began with a strip of plastic, caught between the branches of a maidenhair tree. This hybrid collection drills the archive for film scores, fiction, and scholarship, recovering the intertextual saturations of plastic and plankton, oil and oceans.
