Adult Head

Adult Head is the first book of poetry by Jeff Tweedy the songwriting genius behind the band Wilco In turns surreal and concrete playful and serious urgent and whimsical Adult Head rewards readers with a uniue prosody and deep wisdom Culled from the s. Years ago before I finished my English degree and tempered my opinion a bit I said to my sister Yeah I don t like poetryAnd she said Listen to Jeff Tweedy s lyrics and you ll see he s a great poetSo although I d dabbled in Wilco s music a bit and I d always liked what lyrics I could understand I paid closer attention Eventually I heard about Adult Head a collection of his poetry and I finally got around to it this last weekAnd you know what Based purely on this book Yeah I don t like poetryThere s some very interesting stuff here particularly if you re a Wilco fan and I ll even say some good stuff and I d also like to point out that I am most definitely still not an expert on poetryMany of the lines here went on to feature in Wilco songs and it s nearly impossible for me to read those lines without hearing the music and the cadence and Tweedy s voice This absolutely transformed the poetry for me Because for the lines that didn t conjure up known songs I had much difficulty relating or caring much about them I can feel the emotion and I know that this is very heartfelt work What was the most interesting for me about reading these poems though was exactly their translation into the songs I could see and hear the process I appreciated the transformation and how voice and music can change everything Even the poems I didn t much care for confusion and stilted ideas I imagine I d appreciate much better if I heard Tweedy read them aloudThe Next Ten YearsI want to beginwhere the dilation chargesand juries weepover half opened wombsWhere god staggers incleft chinned and broodingdizzy sick with creationI want to begin with thisminus infinity

    I'm generally a big fan of Tweedy's work but much of this collection felt a bit like a glimpse into his notebooks than a finished collection of poetry to me Maybe I should have looked at it as suchas a glimpse into his notebooks I actually found it uite fascinating Anyone familiar with his songs will instantly recognize some of the seeds I'd still consider it a good read for fans of Tweedybut not so much for someone look
