If there was one poet I wish I could write like it, it might be Emily Toder.  Her poems are empathetic, generous and open with an emotional intelligence that run laps around the world we are becoming in. She doesn’t demand or consume, she considers.  Just look.

Today her first book, SCIENCE, has been released from the newly rebooted Coconut Books.

Read the first poem in the book that originally appeared in Sixth Finch. Then if you feel like I do, buy it here.

I think this may be my favorite book of the year. It could be yours too.

      Is she the one who does the reading in the water thing in that movie, the notnostrums one? That’s so good.

      Yeah. She’s amphibious.
