"There are more beautiful things than Beyoncé: self-awareness,/Leftover mascara in clumps, recognizing a pattern/This is for all the grown women out there/Whose countries hate them and their brothers/Who carry knives in their purses down the street/Maybe they will not get out alive/Maybe they will turn into air or news or brown flower petals," writes Morgan Parker in the title poem of her new collection, There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyoncé. If that doesn't pique your interest/make you feel something/have you reexamining your negative attitude about poetry (get over it!), check yourself for a pulse. MEGAN BURBANK
