About this item

Incantatory, intimate, and incendiary, the poems of this award-winning debut are filled with explosive wit and humor like a knife you don’t see coming.” A kaleidoscopic intelligence flows throughBeautiful Zero, embracing forms of culture high and low in effort to finding meaning in the chaos. Poems about Shark Week and college football sit beside Roman Polanski and biting critiques of modern war. A series of poems set in a Kaiser Permanente hospital tear into the world of privatized health care while simultaneously charting a story of love in the face of catastrophe. Yet even at her most surreal, Willoughby always finds the pulsing heart at the core of the poem. She embraces what she cannot understand about both the world and herself because after all, Nothing is as random as they say it is. / You were born the weirdo that you are.”
