Claire Wahmanholm’s Playlist for Her Poetry Collection “Meltwater”

“…with a few exceptions, these aren’t tracks that I was actively listening to as I wrote Meltwater. It’s more like ‘here’s another way to access the tonal and emotional arc of the book,’ which is about fear, the future, eco-collapse, parenthood & children, death, dystopia, self-destruction, guilt & responsibility, hopelessness & (maybe) redemption.”
