Chialun Chang / One Day We Become Whites / 2016

Available

Writing rapidly, and into a language is to create a new language entirely. The poems in One Day We Become Whites resist and embrace perspectives that render us simultaneously complicit and resistant to otherness or privilege, but they are more than just an important cultural critique of our moment in America.

The poems in this collection are love poems made of complex emotions. They are poems that help us see how something can be scary and beautiful at the same time. Chialun Chang’s images are expansive and fast, but accessible. It is as if we are following Chang down the street and she is always seven steps ahead of us to remind us that the emotions we digest are not always great, but even the most bitter can be light, even the most ordinary can be complex.

Launch reading featured in Asian in NY, as well as at CNA.comApple Daily, and ET Today

Chialun Chang is a visual artist and writer born in Taipei and now living in NYC. She is recipient of a 2015 Immigrant Artist Mentoring Fellowship from NYFA and a 2016 Emerging Writers Fellowship from Poets House.

Isabel Sobral Campos / Material / 2015

Sold out

In Material, by Isabel Sobral Campos, the language of the body, of landscape, of the interior of hospitals, of undersea creatures, of the digital world, are collaged as a poem cycle whose words repel and attract, ordering the chaos of a body’s cancer. Boog City says of the chapbook, “Her words permeate our being; dense, textured, auratic; the syllables limitless as to where they can drift, fall, seed, and harm.”

*Includes code for a digital recording of the chapbook.*

Emily Skillings / Linnaeus: The 26 Sexual Practices of Plants / 2014

Sold out

The Swedish author August Strindberg wrote that, “Linnaeus was in reality a poet who happened to become a naturalist.” Through Skillings, we meet the poet in Linnaeus. Linnaeus who opens his mouth and a new word flies out, who touches his ear and hears, “you are making sense,” who celebrates in private. Despite an attempt to atomize and categorize, things become other things: his hand becomes a part of his desk, little human turds tumble out of the esophagus of an elevator, leaves become buttons. Sure, he laid the foundations for the modern biological naming scheme of binomial nomenclature but in Skillings’ portrait, he’s also somewhat wayward, prone to irritability, and like the best of us, a little dirty.

Linnaeus was first published in Issue 1 of Stonecutter: A Journal of Art & LiteratureSTEM & Leaf calls Linnaeus “luscious and spare,” and Time Out names it one of Ten Chapbooks to Read Now.

Skillings' other chapbook, Backchannel, is out from Poor Claudia. Recent poems can be found in the Philadelphia Review of BooksStonecutterMaggyElderlyBone BouquetBig Lucks and Poor Claudia :: Crush. Skillings dances for The Commons Choir and presents her own choreography in New York. She lives in Brooklyn, where she is a member of the Belladonna* Collaborative, a feminist poetry collective and event series.


David Feinstein / Woods Porn: The Adventures of Little Walter / 2014

Sold out

The poems in Woods Porn take you deep into the wet cave of Little Walter’s pants, to a place that is familiar, estranged, and dirty as a little boy’s waterlogged cock. Part Freud, part Whitman, these poems delve into the id of Little Walter, with all of its sparkling, terrible complexities.

David Feinstein’s poems have appeared in Tin HouseForklift, OhioThe Atlas Reviewsmoking glue gunIlk Journal, and No, Dear. He lives in Western Massachusetts, where he studies and teaches English at Umass-Amherst and helps to edit jubilat.


Brian Trimboli / The Brothers, Perdendo and Perdendosi / 2013

Sold out

Trimboli writes of how each generation bears onward despite the previous one, that the children might indeed master the meaningless: to rename, they might establish a little control. They endure.  This even, breathing, blood-rich narrative made me want to squeeze everyone I have ever known for just one more drop of meaning.     — Amy Lawless

The brothers and their father are delightfully specific, but also tragic Everymen. Trimboli’s concerns are with masculinity’s sad and inexorable toll on youth, in a way that’s mythic and particular, heartbreaking and beautiful all at once.     — Matthew Rohrer

Brian Trimboli’s poems have appeared in Gulf CoastIndiana Review, and Forklift, Ohio. He has received fellowships from NYU and Bucknell University, and is currently a PhD candidate at Binghamton University.
