Phases by Mischa Willett

Phases by Mischa WillettThe 22nd book in the Poiema Poetry Series is Phases by Mischa Willett. Published March 16, 2017.

Mischa Willett teaches English at Seattle Pacific University. He is the author of the chapbook Lunatic, and now of one full-length poetry collection.

Kevin Craft writes, “Mischa Willett’s Phases takes time in stride. These poems rub shoulders with classical figures and Biblical traditions, stoics, and shepherds and sleep-deprived poets, the better to place the old stories in a contemporary light. I admire the epigrammatic wit, Martial-like in its cutting wryness. If the unexamined life is not worth living, these poems investigate the daily struggle to find one’s place in the bigger picture — ‘like holding one’s breath / to remember the air.'”
