I Don’t Know Do You


  • Description

    Named One of the Best Books of 2014 by NPR
    Finalist for Thom Gunn Award for Gay Poetry from the Publishing Triangle

    I Don’t Know Do You gives us 102 new ways to be brilliant in our failure. We also get love poems–to daytime fireworks, several feet of snow, and astonished frontiersmen. Montes’s poems unfold into unknowing, proving again and again that we can only underestimate our capacity for love and reinvention.

    What I did just now was a trick
    to get people to love each other
    and eventually me.

    It’s working even now.

    It is.
