Winner, 2015 Whiting Award for Poetry  Stunning, highly original poems that celebrate the richness of the author's multicultural tradition, Teeth explores loves, wars, wild hope, defiance, and the spirit of creativity in a daring use of language and syntax. Behind this language one senses a powerful, inventive woman who is not afraid to tackle any subject, including rape, genocide, and love, always sustained by an optimistic voice, assuring us that in the end justice will triumph and love will persevere. LOVE, you be the reason why we swagger & jive, lift the guitar, & pick up the axe. when it is i tilt my hat to the side, wearing colors & perfumes, it's cause, love, you did it to me. oh, you do sure turn my tongue to fiddle, & make the salt taste sweet. man, i don't need a rooster, or peacock even, to help me spend my time, nope, just you, love, right & solid as a line.… (mere)

One of the strongest debuts of poetry from the last decade, I think. Girmay has wonderful range in this collection, from political poems to love poems to odes to more conventional lyric poems. My personal favorite here is "The Dog," an imaginary letter from the poet to some friends promising to care for their dog while they are away in Antarctica and Belarus. Somewhere along the line the dog becomes a metaphor for human longing, absence making the heart grow fonder and that sort of thing, building up to this wonderful conclusion:

He will forget that to see you leave
burned down his ramshackle heart once, instead
your smells will flood him in tides craned down
toward the chest's burning honeycomb, amen,
perfect as water rushing toward thirst, again, amen.

If you've ever missed someone dearly, you've got to love those lines. ( )

Girmay's poems are varied and aware, wandering into different territories and balancing smoothly between language-play and observation. In many of them, there's such power that a reader is hard-pressed to not stop, consider, and reread the same poem once again--not because of a lack of clarity, but because there's a drive to re-experience it, and gain some more drops of meaning and emotion. It's true that not every poem lives up to this description--a few are oversoaked in description or expansion--but most of the poems here will be well worth the time for poetry lovers who want their poetry to come with an awareness of the world, and not only self-awareness.

All told, I truly enjoyed this one, and have to recommend it on to anyone who enjoys dipping into contemporary poetry; it's a lovely, thoughtful read, with much to appreciate and consider. ( )
