Gain. The poet is a windsock, catching all the affect that blows at her and ballooning to fullness, only to empty again when the wind changes direction. Iron Goddess of Mercy is a game of mah jong played deep into the night, an endless gamble.

Presented in sixty four fragments to honor the sixty four hexagrams of the I Ching, Iron Goddess of Mercy also borrows from haibun, a traditional Japanese form of travel writing in which each diary entry closes with a haiku. The poem dizzies, turns on itself. It rants, it curses, it writes love letters, but as the Iron Goddess is ever changing, so is the object.

Inspired by the tumultuous history of Hong Kong, from the Japanese and British occupations to the ongoing pro democracy protests, the poem interrogates the complicated notion of identity, offering a prism through which the term Asian can be understood to make sense of a complex set of relations. The self crystallizes in moments of solidity, only to dissolve and whirl away a.

What she unearthed there is an elaborate web connecting conscious worlds to subconscious ones, fascism to neofascisms, Europe to the Americas to the Middle East, typhus to HIV/AIDS, genocide in Romania to land grabs in Palestine, women’s lives in farming villages to queer lives in the city, language to its trap doors, and love to its hidden, ancestral obligations.

Mask for Mask

World that buffs our bodies down to whetstones of sameness, Mask for Mask celebrates excess, and I'm all for it.' —Cathy Park Hong, author of Minor Feelings

'JD Scott’s queer divine poems are both exorbitant and restrained, a decoction of 19th century urges regaled in the “lace and stain” of diction, harnessed in stanzas, belted into the Escalade of lyric and driven through a 21 st century synthscape of emporia and empyreans. The result is an ensorcelling surface riven with a deeper moire, to wit: what is the “cytoplasm that keeps this car crash together”? Could it be youth, desire, or something altogether rarer, like tenderness, or care?' —Joyelle M.

Mask for MaskJD Scott conjures up unruly personae that are propelled by queer fantasies, youthful regrets, incantations, and apocryphal parables. Mask for Mask is a kaleidoscopic poetry collection, one that is both formally innovative and an imaginative descent into LGBTQ+ undergrounds and underworlds.

'The fact that JD Scott writes about jjimjjimbangs (Korean saunas) should be enough for me to love this collection but it's also the fact their poetry is exuberant and scintillating. It's a magpie's nest of verbal delights plucked from the late capitalist rituals of wellness, queer kitsch, and text speak. This book is the queered language of artifice that points at artifice.

Amber and Clay

Amber and ClayThe Newbery Medal–winning author of Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! gives readers a virtuoso performance in verse in this profoundly original epic pitched just right for fans of poetry, history, mythology, and fantasy.

Welcome to ancient Greece as only genius storyteller Laura Amy Schlitz can conjure it. In a warlike land of wind and sunlight, “ringed by a restless sea,” live Rhaskos and Melisto, spiritual twins with little in common beyond the violent and mysterious forces that dictate their lives. A Thracian slave in a Greek.

Amber and ClayHousehold, Rhaskos is as common as clay, a stable boy worth less than a donkey, much less a horse. Wrenched from his mother at a tender age, he nurtures in secret, aided by Socrates, his passions for art and philosophy. Melisto is a spoiled aristocrat, a girl as precious as amber but willful and wild. She’ll marry and be tamed—the curse of all highborn girls—but risk her life for a season first to serve Artemis, goddess of the hunt.

If This Is the Age We End Discovery

If This Is the Age We End Discovery2019 Alice James Award Winner

Booklist, Starred Review: “The disciplines of poetry and physics might seem far afield from one another, but Ben Oni draws on the odd properties of supersymmetry to create a dexterous collection of electric lyrics that defies conventions of science and syllabics alike. In fragments of text that float and swirl in staccato arrangements, Ben Oni grapples with otherwise abstract principles made intimate in their idiosyncratic imagining: “They are not elegant. // I mean. My vibra tions, my math. In particular. // The math holding me together is particularly faulty.” Projected outward, the poet’s vision captures relationships with breathtaking imagery, as when a poem slowly disentangles the speak er’s connection with her father in law: “The air is grey. osseous. Sheds soft down. My eyes water.” A series of “Poet Wrestling” poems define the book’s structure, and “Poet Wrestling with the Brxght Brxght Xyxs” recalls Ben Oni’s previous collection, turn around, BRXGHT XYXS (2019), creating a multifaceted, intertextualverse} String Theory” invokes Hebrew gematria and the 11 dimensions hypothesized by string theory with equal ease, and serves as a cypher through which to understand preceding passages.

Publisher's Weekly: The powerful and provocative second collection from Ben Oni tackles major existential issues—creation, nullification, personal experience, objective truth—with grace, humor, and linguistic flair. A persistent refrain is the poet wrestling with scientific theories about the nature of reality as she applies her own poetic spin to creation. “Efes,” a Hebrew concept meaning “to nullify,” becomes the focus of these poems as they struggle to conceive of a universe possibly spiraling into nothingness: “Hallo I’m pretty sure my God thinks I’ve lost/ my way when I sing my ears {are} full/ of Dark Energy Efes/ all these planets/ running away. Our universe/ on the run. savage.” Here, there exists the profound and terrifying possibility that “One day, soon, there will be no science fiction.” Yet, while the poet struggles with the big questions, she also makes room for a playful and wishful hope that the creative act can offer humanity a fresh perspective: “So place your bets/ that advanced civilizations don’t always/ not annihilate themselves. Woah./ Let’s try this again./ Reset.” This ruminative c.

Selected as the third winner of the annual Gaudy Boy Poetry Book Prize (2020) by Singapore Literature Prize winning poet Cyril Wong.

Subtle yet potent, philosophical yet grounded, clinical yet intimate, Bengzon's poems expose the limits of healing in its institutionalized and professionalized forms.

Saltmarsh reclaims the word hysteria by arguing that women poets might, in art as in life, celebrate incongruous emotional experiences. Drawing on and reshaping an intriguing array of source materials, Saltmarsh borrows from the language of uncontrollable emotion, excess, cure, remedy, and cult.

Hysterical WaterHysterical Water is a collection of fierce, funny, feminist poems, prose poems, and essays with poems woven through them, all connected by threads associated with female hysteria and motherhood. Hannah Baker Saltmarsh troubles the historic pseudodiagnostic term hysteria as both a constraining mode used to contain and silence women and as a mode that oddly freed women to behave outside the bounds of social norms.


Transversal: Poems

TransversalTransversal takes a  disruptive approach to poetic translation, opening up alternative ways of reading as poems get translated or transcreated into entirely new pieces. In this collection, Urayoán Noel masterfully examines his native Puerto Rico and the broader Caribbean as sites of transversal poetics and politics. Featuring Noel’s bilingual playfulness, intellect, and irreverent political imagination, Transversal contains personal reflections on love, desire, and loss filtered through a queer approach.

To form, expanding upon Noel’s experiments with self translation in his celebrated collection Buzzing Hemisphere/Rumor Hemisférico. This collection explores walking poems improvised on a smartphone, as well as remixed classical and experimental forms. Poems are presented in interlocking bilingual versions that complicate the relationship between translation and original, and between English and Spanish as languages of empire and popular struggle. The book creatively examines translation and its simultan.

There was a knob you’d turn to find stations.

The black and white TV played soap operas.

Even though my mother worked at a factory, she had a union that protected us.

It was a respectable job.

The black and white TV only had three stations.

It had an antenna… these little metal bars sticking out from the top.
