Poems 2014—2017
Jonathan Greene

The latest collection from a master poet whose career
now spans six decades. Though each exquisitely well-
chosen word here bears the full weight of human
experience, Jonathan Greene's touch is so light and sure
that his poems float on the page, and in our minds upon
reading them.
Gists, Orts, Shards
A Commonplace Book
Enlarged & Revised
Jonathan Greene

"Greene's book is testimony to a mind ripened by a
lifetime of reading—but it's also a fascinating (and
sometimes startling) symposium open to all."
—Robert West

This latest addition to Greene's series collects his
previous two volumes and adds much new material.
Poems by
Vickie Cimprich

Contrary Creek runs through Eastern Kentucky and
through our imagination in this new collection from a poet
known for verse informed by scholarship and infused with
A poetry chapbook by
Missy Browson

Hush, Candy is a marvelous collection, full of fun, sass,
and splendid rebellion.”
—Kathleen Driskell

“This is a gorgeous first collection for Missy Brownson—
one I will recommend often.”

—Kelly Moffett
prison recipes
A poetry chapbook by
Jeremy Paden

“These poems are urgent and unflinching as they
interrogate humanity in the face of horror.”
—Bianca Lynne Spriggs

Jeremy Paden takes us into the man-made darkness of
political oppression in Argentina and Chile, and through
poems describing the means by which bodies and souls
are sustained, he also celebrates the triumph of human
dignity in the face of brutality.
Lucky Talk
26 Short Poems by
Jeff Worley

The title is borrowed from William Stafford, who
described poems as “pieces of talk, savored and
sustained.”  These poems from award-winning author
Jeff Worley are just that, and his readers are in luck to
savor and be sustained by them.
No More Poems
Poetry by
F. Keith Wahle

“F. Keith Wahle’s No More Poems is an heroic
Whitmanesque exercise in celebration, as he looks at the
ranges of things poems can be about, present, future, and
past...”  — David Schloss

In this brilliantly satiric, breathlessly paced, often
hilarious enumeration of all the things about which poems
will no longer be written, the ultimate “list poem”
transforms into a litany of supplication for the sake of
poetry, of culture, and ultimately of life itself.
Reasons for the Long Tum
Poetry by
Sara Cahill Marron

“Sara Marron writes a startling poetry for our disjointed
times, one that moves beyond the clichéd and confining
limits of poetry, but also optimizing poetry’s virtues on
authentic voice, sound, and wisdom.”
—Stephen Paul Miller

Like the Duchamp painting that inspired it, this is a work
that shatters conventions and defies definition.  That it
arrives from a first-time author is even more cause for
celebration, a hopeful sign of the enduring power and
potential of language in the service of humanity in dark
times and places.
The Bean Can: A Book
A Novella by
Steven R. Cope

“Cope has an affinity with Faulkner and Flannery O’
Connor, but his genius is all his own. Don’t miss this
                —George Ella Lyon

When Agile Hess goes missing, his mother asks his
childhood friend Hills to search for him. The ensuing
quest takes us through memory and myth, comedy and
tragedy, all against a backdrop of the land and people of
Eastern Kentucky, portrayed in lovingly lyrical language.
Poetry by
Lynn McGee

“Lynn McGee sees the world in fierce vivid takes.”
          —Joseph Zaccardi

In these poems of passage, humane and haunting, Lynn
McGee’s daily commute along the tracks of the New
York subway provides the setting for meditations on her
fellow riders, including the ghost of her dead sister.

An Anthology
Poetry by
The Boston University
MFA Poetry Class of 2018

The pronounced, even idiosyncratic differences among
these eight young poets have manifested an unusual,
engaging whole. All of us who know them agree that they
are remarkably gifted as well as consistently generous
with one another and with the world
                                                   —Robert Pinsky
Eden Incarnadine, or
The Authentic History of the
Terrible Harpes
A Narrative Poem by
Dan Howell

Eden Incarnadine is a wildly inventive, gut-punch of a
poem. I’ve never read anything quite like it. It is at once
experimental and grounded in tradition. Howell inhabits
an earlier American idiom and never hits a flat note. If
Cormac McCarthy wrote poetry, it would sound like
                                     —Erik Reece
Ghost Writer
Poetry by
Melody Davis

Ghost Writer is a necessary read, both recognizable
and terrifying.”
                     —Bertha Rogers, Poet & Translator

“Do you believe in ghosts?” Davis asks at one point.  
You will, as you read these poems and encounter a
haunted world, where our ghosts continue to live through
us, writing us into existence, and out of it.
