Item description for Poem for the End of Time and Other Poems by Noelle Kocot...
"Kocot has found a language for her emotions that pulls an abundance of memories, post-punk urban metaphors and manic verbal twists into her simultaneously cerebral and energizing universe"-Publishers Weekly
A tragic narrative journey through a New York wasteland and a warning to a city and a world in danger, Noelle Kocot's third book has the prophetic immediacy of Ginsberg's "Howl" and the urgent clarity of Langston Hughes. As a poet who has achieved success in the realms of both grassroots popularity and national critical attention, Kocot is poised to claim her place as America's boldest new poetic voice.

Reviews - What do customers think about Poem for the End of Time and Other Poems?
An anthology of free-verse poetry that dwells upon the difficulties that beset one in the different phases of existence. Sep 6, 2007
Award-winning poet Noelle Kocot presents Poem for the End of Time and Other Poems, an anthology of free-verse poetry that dwells upon the difficulties that beset one in the different phases of existence. At types evoking a hypnotic repeat phrasing, at times evoking raw emotion through cursing, and at times mournful in its reminiscence of loss, Poem for the End of Time and Other Poems is an experience to shake the reader, and prompt reconsideration of the truly big questions. "An orange radio is all I need / To keep me in green seas // I slip between the corners of the wind / And drink to remember you. // Be the skin on my lap / As I kneel once again upon your absence. // An orange radio, green seas... // And for that which is not said / And for that which is already said // I lay down my head / To the very end of my silence // To the very end of my silence / I lay down my head.
