A whole five of our poems appear in issue XI of Book XI, a “Journal of Literary Philosophy” housed at The Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center at Hamilton College. It feels extra lucky that these poems, from our forthcoming debut collaborative collection ZZOO with Palimpsest Press, are in the “Superstitions” issue. Enjoy poems such as:
1. “No Performances Today,” which is about a real-life cemetery for circus performers;
2. “Skybird,” in which two people who almost never go on planes write about the phenomenology of air travel;
3. “Sugarwhip,” a strange little diptych we struggle to describe, but it’s kind of about evolution;
4. “Subsidized Housing for Small Birds,” one of my personal favourite poems (and titles) from our book, which we wrote after perusing a handbook on bird-watching; and,
Three of our poems, ‘Furverts,’ As the Next Day Dawned’ and ‘Zoomorphs’ appear in The Animal Issue of CV2 Magazine, guest edited by Dina del Bucchia. It’s exciting to see these poems in what feels like their natural habitat! All three poems are from our forthcoming debut poetry collection ZZOO (Palimpsest Press, 2025).
Our poem, ‘Vorescape,’ about a man raised by wolves, is in the Collaborations issue of Rabbit, an Australian journal of “nonfiction poetry.” This poem is from our forthcoming debut poetry collection ZZOO (Palimpsest Press, 2025).
We are delighted to have a selection of sculpture-collages and accompanying ekphrastic poems, from our manuscript-in-progress Waste Not the Marrow, in The Ex-Puritan’s recently launched hybrid section! Special thanks to section editors Rasiqra Revulva and William Dao.
