One thought on “Flamingo Watching

  1. Ray

    "Hit and miss" another reviewer said, and that was my experience as well. My favorites include "Turtle", and "Paired Things", which are quoted in full in some of the other reviews. Here's my top favorite. It opens with an epigram by Chagall* THE TABLES FREEDThe presence of real objects is a nightmare for me. I have always overturned objects. A chair or a table turned upside down gives me peace and satisfaction.--Chagall.A companionable flood canmake things wobble. Thesober table at last enjoysth [...]

    I have decided to work my way through the Pulitzer Poetry winners as part of my reading list for 2013 (and beyond), and Kay Ryan's Best of It: New and Selected Poems won the honor in 2011. Preferring the original, individual collections to "Best Of" compilations, I opted to start with Ryan's Flamingo Watching. This is a short, readable book of poems that reveals Ryan's love of the written word - its sound, its imagery, its rhythm and rhyming potential. Here is one of my favorites called "This Li [...]

    I love this book mostly for a handful of poems, as well as this one ("Turtle"), which is quite possibly one of my favourites of all time: TurtleWho would be a turtle who could help it?A barely mobile hard roll, a four-oared helmet,She can ill afford the chances she must takeIn rowing toward the grasses that she eats.Her track is graceless, like draggingA packing-case places, and almost any slopeDefeats her modest hopes. Even being practical,She’s often stuck up to the axle on her wayTo somethi [...]

    Paired ThingsWho, who had only seen wings,could extrapolate theskinny sticks of thingsbirds use for land,the backward way they bend,the silly way they stand?And who, only studyingbirdtracks in the sand,could think those little forkshad decamped on the wind?So many paired things seem odd.Who ever would have dreamedthe broad winged raven of despairwould quit the air and gobandylegged upon the ground,a common crow?

  5. Evan

    Maybe my disappointment is due to the fact that, reading the few poems that accompanied the announcements of her poetlaureateship, I got excited, thinking here was a poet who's building on Marianne Moore -- something that seems pretty rare (Robyn Schiff being the exception) -- who's opened so many doors that nobody's walked through.When I read Ryan's work (this and Niagara River), it had a tendency toward mawkish, too-cute-by-half anthropomorphisms -- the easy kind of hummel (sp?) figurine cuten [...]

  6. Ben Rowe

    Kay Ryan is a great poet. Her poems manage to be accessible without being shallow or trite. They are short and philosophical without feeling pretentious or gimmicky. They are poems that bring smiles and make you think and rethink what you might otherwise take for granted. Very readable and very rereadable with interesting and precise rhythmic structures.

  7. Melynda Nuss

    The album doesn't quite live up to the collection of singles I'd heard. But what singles! "Turtle" and "Flamingos" are some of the best poems in the language. You can hear the frustration in "Turtle," and see

  8. Melissa

    There was a huge stylistic jump between Ryan's first and second collections. Flamingo Watching is better aligned with the idiosyncrasies in her later work.

  9. Alarie

    As Jane Hirshfield says, “Kay Ryan’s poetry is entirely unique.” She is musical and often wry. Somehow she breaks that “show don’t tell” rule over and over again, but still makes us say, “Aha!”

    New to poetry. Now- before you start sending me poet recommendations- let me try this out.Just as I thought- I'm not smart enough for poetry.
