FORMER PLANET - Brian Henry
3 x 3" collection of short poems that span from Ghost Fonts to Food Courts, from Push Mowers to Phantom Crystals, and all the Lice Hunters and Stage Mothers in between.
THE COSTUME OF A HUNTER - Kate Lindroos
in that there is sky there must also be wings, in her new chapbook THE COSTUME OF A HUNTER Kate Lindroos investigates what language is and does to us and for us, its logic, its images, the sounds it makes, so that, when one lets one's brain take upon itself to think how these poems think, it isn't too far-fetched to say in that there is existence there must also be Kate Lindroos telling us how that feels in poems. The book's epigraph ends with a sentence from Barry Lopez, "The land is like poetry: it is inexplicably coherent, it is transcendent in its meaning, and it has the power to elevate a consideration of human life."
GHOSTLY GLANCES - Holly St. John Bergon
Holly St. John Bergon’s GHOSTLY GLANCES ranges from Las Vegas to England, Colorado to Spain, Martha’s Vineyard to Mexico in poems that veer toward the uncanny in moments of transformation in the lives of a boxer, bullfighter, Lacandón Indian, Virginia Woolf’s ghost, red-tailed hawks, and the poet herself, dwelling in half-light among both the living and the dead.
