5 New Poems in BOOK XI

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,

5. “Arbeitslied” (“work song”).

The issue is available to read in full for free online.
