God I Feel Modern Tonight

God I Feel Modern Tonight yeeted me out of a weeks-long reading rut, what with its addictive slimness and its unfiltered yet succinct poems, all of which are utterly tweetable. This book is best read with vocal fry, whether that’s internally or out loud to your partner for hilarity and “romance.” Catherine Cohen is depressed and lonely and has sex a lot and is going to therapy and always wants a boyfriend. She’s addicted to her phone and drinks too much and hates being alone. Sound relatable enough? Think of it as a millennial montage with self-loathing and self-obsession at odds, plus a hint of pandemic. *chef’s kiss*. Recommended by Mary

in L.A. we got naked and swam in the ocean
we ate cured meats and carrots
& sat in the back of a red pickup truck
like we were in a film where two old friends fight
