El Creacionismo

Vicente Huidobro, tr. by Jonathan Simkins
$18 | ISBN 9781732874145

“We will rediscover in these poems by Vicente Huidobro... the resources revitalized by the avant-garde to transmit the historic vertigo of a fractured world, to contemplate and respond to the immanent belonging of certain places, and finally to open a dialogue between cultures, identities and languages.”
Leo Lobos

Goslings to Prophecy

Anne Waldman & Emma Gomis
$15 | ISBN 9781732874152

“We were thinking about tone, self-definition removal, no projection of 'message' agitating language from its memory bank. Or directed personally with personal details. To the contrary Another kind of salute. Obtuse? And wanting to honor sonnet and her spins."

Bruised Gospel

Sarah Alcaide-Escue
$15 | 9781732874121

“This is the poetry of pressure, uncontainable lyrics so tightly constructed they explode through a world injured aånd marked by its injuries, but healing and filled with the most wondrous light.”
Jay Hopler

Morning Rites

Reed Bye
$18 | ISBN 9781732874114

“Reed Bye lets the round world come into the round eye on its own terms. There is no imposition, no going out there, so to speak, because whatever we are is already ‘round the pools.’ There is no subterfuge, no guile. Deep clarity is found – by a rare wonder – in pure utterance.”

Poetic Faith

David Mutschlecner
$18 | ISBN 9781732874107

“Not singing of the world, but singing to it, Mutschlecner offers us an invitation foolhardy to decline: ‘Stay with the world awhile. Linger.’ He writes with light, as light; all one need do is let the eye adjust, take a patient breath, and see.”
Dan Beachy-Quick

Pomes Penyeach by James Joyce

A moondew stars her hanging hair
And moonlight kisses her young brow
And, gathering, she sings an air:
Fair as the wave is, fair, art thou!
Be mine, I pray, a waxen ear
To shield me from her childish croon
And mine a shielded heart for her
Who gathers simples of the moon
(from "Simples," Trieste, 1914)


No. 3

On Your Person

“A dream, at once a prophecy and the adaptation of a myth. A dome, a miniature replica of a blue hemisphere. I could weep.”
Ella Longpre

No. 2

Please Do Touch

“And then I said to summer
Show yourself
& summer stood still.
I saw perfectly clear the hunger apparent
in energy's purpose
The time that kills with the space that fills
and I spoke and I meant it”
Matt Clifford
