Watermelon Kindness (PDF)

from “North of 60”
Angels are aliens in spaceships. Angels descend
and eagles soar. I am not an eagle. If I were an angel I would descend
and give you of the bread of happiness
the salt of anger
& the message you already know better than I know:
the moon & the lakes & the hills
are forever.

A Nice Place To Visit (PDF)

$12.49

It’s difficult to describe A Nice Place to Visit. Some will say it’s not a book of poetry at all — but that’s just because it’s funny and has reviews of bad movies and advice on things like love. Also, it’s a kind of travelogue: you get to go to Costa Rica and look at plants and and stuff and think more about love. And oh yeah, the book tells you who not to sleep with — that’s very important. And have you ever heard of John Wildman, the guy who starred in the Canadian hit movie My American Cousin?

Paper Radio (PDF)

$12.49

In her first book, Damian Rogers tracks the transformative moment, where emotion and deep memory seek form through sound and image. Her poems tune into a stream of cosmic chatter, channeling voices that tell their stories slant, from a chaste nineteenth century utopian mystic to a chorus of crones to the radical characters of Detroits sixties-era radical underground. Examining the equally futile and seductive impulses to chase both chaos and perfection, Rogers taps into history and mythology as each transmission mines material that is at once personal and public.

Always Die Before Your Mother (PDF)

$9.95

Like an embedded journalist, Patrick Woodcock writes his poetry from the front lines of experience.

From cities reeling from the trauma of siege warfare to the stifling heat and politics of the Arabian Peninsula to the darkest corners of the South American rain forest, Woodcock's poems bear witness to a world that is equally immediate and remote... and far more complex than we often imagine.
