Poetry. Kyger's poetry is a daily, hourly, rumination/celebration of human existence, ritual, and physicality, of "how one thing happens after another, seasons, weather, feelings, friends." SOME LIFE exhibits Kyger's keen observations, her biting wit and her diary-like method of composition all while investigating the role of the poet as citizen, artist and connector. "She's one of our hidden treasures -- the poet who really links the Beats, the Spicer Circle, the Bolinas Poets, the New York School, and the Language poets, and the only poet who can be said to do all of the above" -- Ron Silliman. Other titles available through SPD are ALL THIS EVERY DAY (1975) and AGAIN: POEMS 1989-2000 (2001).
