Guest editor Denise Duhamel picked Nathan Anderson's Stupid Sandwich for the Best American Poetry 2013. Of Stupid Sandwich, Anderson writes:
“This poem started when a few lines (a shadowy echo of what would become the speaker’s voice) surfaced while I was working on another project. As the speaker’s voice developed and the context began to take shape, I became interested in how this particular speaker responds and, more broadly, how all of us respond, when the daily pressures of a life become seemingly unmanageable.”
