In Bad Anatomy, these darkly humorous poems provide an unyielding glimpse into the anxieties of selfhood and the ways that the imagination functions as a fool-proof escape. She does this in a way that feels real and original, lending her voice out into the world. A poet of self-deprecation and dark fantasy, Cohen is a woman haunted by her own vulnerabilities, a woman creating the strength-shield she needs to navigate and survive this life.
Hannah Cohen lives in Virginia and received her MFA from Queens University of Charlotte. She is the author of the chapbook Bad Anatomy (Glass Poetry Press, 2018).
