Wild is the Wind


This collection of poems by Carl Phillips is named after a jazz standard performed by artists including Johnny Mathis and Nina Simone. The poems tell the stories of love.

The poems examine many sides of the emotion: estrangement versus communication, the ramifications of understanding the past as history in contrast to the past as memory, and the consequences of both.
