A Season in Hell & Illuminations

By: Bertrand Mathieu

$15.00


"With skill and imagination, Bertrand Mathieu gives us an intimacy of the spoken American that allows readers to absorb themselves in Rimbaud's private drama as in an obsessive dream of our own, Rimbaud becomes a contemporary of youthful grief, rage, sarcasm and disgust... Bertrand Mathieu has earned our gratitude and praise for his accomplishment: to have given us Rimbaud's relevance today." —David Ignatow

All You Ask for Is Longing: New and Selected

By: Sean Thomas Dougherty

$16.00


New and Selected Poems



For more than 20 years, Sean Thomas Dougherty has negotiated between modernist and avant-garde writing and more populist traditions that extend back to Walt Whitman. His subject matter ranges from basketball to Björk, from blue collar workers to Biggie Smalls, from Luciano Pavarotti to women waiting at a diner outside a prison in Upstate New York. Selecting from the best of eight previous collections, this 'New and Selected' reveals the powerful arc and development of Dougherty’s writing and establishes him as a voice of dissent for the future.

Along the Dark Shore

By: Edward Byrne

$7.00


"The world of Edward Byrne's poems is our own world viewed through the wrong end of a telescope: curiously small and urgent... But the minuteness of scale is deceptive... in Byrne's poetry... particulars explode into universality as through the action of a zoom lens."   - From the Foreword by John Ashberys

American Children

By: Jim Simmerman

$14.95


In his fifth full-length collection, Jim Simmerman creates an elegy-in-verse with technical mastery, wit and passion.  American Children's thematic pillars are bridged by three sequences: one of free verse poems; another in traditional and not-so-traditional forms; a third of "miniatures" -- brief verse snapshots, arranged in pairs and processions.  By turns lyric, narrative, and meditative, the poems in this collection range in tone from the formal tribute of eulogy to the keening and cut-up of wake.

An Unkindness of Ravens

By: Meg Kearney

$14.00


In An Unkindness of Ravens, Meg Kearney's poems weave voices of estrangement and redemption: mothers, daughters, lovers of gin and dead things. In an attempt to create an identity--to imagine a past when all biological and genealogical ties have been severed--Kearney's poems create their own mythology in order to tell an emotional truth.

Anchor Dragging Poems

By: Archibald MacLeish

$10.00


I can give you a sense of Tony Piccone in 18 words of his own: The belly stirs, all its frogs start awake. I have always loved this creature, this body of grunts. He calls it "Late Night, World of Croaks" which is fair enough except that it changes the subject. The subject is that strange companion of the journey whom we never get to know because he is too near and who never seems quite to recognize us no matter how close we sometimes are. -from the forward by Archibald MacLeish

AND

By: Michael Blumenthal

$16.00


Through Michael Blumenthal’s eyes we gain a renewed, childlike wonder at everything from plants, trees, and relationships, to the most fundamental word in our vocabulary: AND. Michael Blumenthal uses the conjunction – AND – to unify this new collection and create a incantatory, sonorous rhythm to his work. The result is a book of poems-as-hymns-and-praises.

Antidote for Night (Pre-order)

By: Marsha de la O

$16.00


Set in present-day Southern California, Antidote for Night is a heartbreak lyric, a corrido, a love song to California’s city lights and far-flung outskirts—the San Diego backcountry, the Central Valley, the Inland Empire, and the Mojave Desert. A book of remedies for dire circumstances, rock-bottom realities, and the unrelenting weight of mortality, specifically among young men of color, this collection shows what it takes to see in darkness. Marsha de la O’s voice is a kind of free jazz, musically rich with L.A. noir and the vastness of metropolitan Southern California.

Appetite: Food as Metaphor -- An Anthology of Women Poets

By: Jeanne Foster, Phylis Stowell

$16.00


In poems from as varied women poets such as Jane Kenyon, Lucille Clifton, Anne Sexton, and Sylvia Plath, food emerges as a reoccurring and central metaphor in the way women live, in the pulse of the everyday, and as a vehicle for the exotic. From coffee to caviar, from potatoes to dandelions--even in hunger and anorexia--the metaphors of food have worked like yeast in the imagination of these poets.

Beast is a Wolf with Brown Fire

By: Barry Wallenstein

$4.00


"The feeling here is 'urban' -- a certain removal or distancing combined with keen awareness, the sense of the impersonal wash of night coming over the lonely multitudes amid the surrealistic concrete.... The wry, lost energy of these pieces is the lyric voice of its generation." - M.L. Rosenthal
