Melissa Studdard's high-flying, bold poetic language expresses an erotic appetite for the world: "this desire to butter and eat the stars," as she says, in words characteristically large yet domestic, ambitious yet chuckling at their own nerve.

In a haunting and, ultimately, stunning, sequence of poems in varied lyrical forms, Wendy Barker's Gloss develops a narrative that poses questions about her mother's unusual, seemingly privileged, British background. The poems of this gripping book are punctuated by short syllabic meditations on a Chinese scroll picturing a lone man paddling up a long river toward mountains.

The poetry of a feminist woman of faith, The Long Grass counters the losses endemic to our broken lives--beset by climate change, childhood abuse, gender stereotype and inequity, death itself--with the reassuring persistence of the natural world and the enduring promise of human love.

Horizon of the Dog Woman powerfully explores the strength of people, especially women, who struggle to find acceptance--in their bodies, in histories, in relationships, or in Indigeneity. These poems invoke the anxieties of outsiders, of those forced to reside in the liminal spaces of our society.

Pulp Sonnets Cover Image
$10.00
ISBN: 9781936797622
Availability: Special Order
Published: Tupelo Press - September 1st, 2015

Poetry. Art. Improvising on the tropes of classic pulp fiction, including genres like crime noir, horror, sci-fi, superhero, espionage, and vigilante, Tony Barnstone's audacious new poems are counterpointed by the mischievous (and blood-splattered) ink drawings of Iranian artist Amin Mansouri.


Poetry Reading with Aby Kaupang and Octavio Quintanilla

Nos (Disorder, Not Otherwise Specified) Cover Image
$18.00
ISBN: 9780996002578
Availability: Special Order
Published: Futurepoem - October 1st, 2018

Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Disability Studies. Parenting. Autism. Collaboration. Docu-poetics. We think we know how our lives should be; we know how words fit together in a sentence. We use tests and benchmarks, charts and graphs, rules and spell-checks, to affirm these truths. Maya--the little girl at the center of this book--confounds such ways of knowing.


If I Go Missing Cover Image
$16.00
ISBN: 9780941720359
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Slough Press - April 10th, 2014

An astonishing debut, If I Go Missing is timely, fearless, and necessary. In these poems, Octavio Quintanilla measures displacement with language and grapples with the longing to begin anew, to return to what was left unsaid, undone. Redemption is not always possible in the geography of these poems, but there is always a sense of hope.

This writer warns us she is a woman like a "Mexican electric fence." And yet between the sheets or between the murmur of the rolling pin, we are trusted to overhear confidences between intimates. It is on the white sheets of this book that a woman's most private confessions are transformed from dirty laundry to poetry luminescent as linen on the line.
