Poetry. MOVING DAY is the second collection by acclaimed poet Ish Klein. In this book, the poet deepens her commitment to socially-engaged lyricism, as she directly confronts the darkest sources of conflict and shared suffering while also investigating and celebrating the relationships that help us deal with personal, societal, and environmental ills. Like Whitman and O'Hara before her, Klein is a poet of camaraderie and boundless love. "Kids need each other. / Better they never get / separated entirely."

“In MOVING DAY, instead of composed, stately progressions of words, Ish Klein offers us incantations that subtly undo our sense of ourselves. Each poem is like a pack—a shivering multiplicity of wolf-words in which every meaning or body or solidity is potentially open to transformation.”
—Brian Evenson
