RIVER, OUR RIVER

by MJ Stratton

Pre-Order: May 30, 2023

Shipping: July 3, 2023

Written during a single month, this collection comes from a place of fluent imagination and feeling. Moving through a variety of forms, the poems are both dreams and exposed nerve ends, asking us questions about identity, need, suffering, and the body, while revealing a garden of cinders, moons wrung out into jars, and bees singing in the chest. MJ Stratton draws us into a river of language, at once gentle and cruel, that accepts fluidity and refuses to claim anything for itself as final.

THE PIGS

by Tim Carter

Pre-Order: May 30, 2023

Shipping: July 3, 2023

THE PIGS responds to the repetitive horror of gun violence in America's schools. A former middle school teacher whose career spanned from the Sandy Hook to Parkland shootings, Tim Carter reflects on masculinity, radicalization, policing, and the way selves are born, transformed, and destroyed. This single, long poem unfolds with endless immediacy, its images colliding and braiding together, pulling us into the nightmare and yet never losing its intelligence and compassion.

SORRY TO MISS YOU

by Franziska Hofhansel

Released: April 3, 2023

In this interwoven collection of poetry and fiction, we encounter radicalized fish, a dialogue involving a paint chip, and a border between Wal-Mart and God’s love. Through a mixture of the cosmic and the intimate, the real and the unreal, the voices here almost vibrate with feeling as they lead us through our own mesmerizing and insane world.

28 pages (not counting front and back matter)

THE PRIMITIVE ACCUMULATION OF REALNESS

by Amalia Tenuta

Released: April 3, 2023

A collection of (anti-) lyric and visual poetry, the writing in this chapbook collides relentlessly with the possibilities of life under racial capitalism. The language moves through a kaleidoscope of registers and modes, from citation to illustration to a damaged and vital lyricism. At its core is a sustained examination of gender, of how we theorize it, and of the irreducibility of transgender life.
