By Kevin Carey
Kevin Carey's first chapbook, Eviscerare, goes inside the mind of a father with his children on a camping trip. The book length poem is straightforward, quiet, unassuming. Something happens along the way, a shadow appears, unstated, a weight: a father trying to carry on. The shadow (fear, understanding, resignation, acceptance) remains long after the book is put away.

One hip-hop soulful tune here in Ghosting America. (Publication Date: February 1st, 2017.)
By Danny Rosen
Primate Poems exemplifies the nature of a very young species coming into awareness of itself. Many of the story-like poems are moments of ‘something going on’ in the midst of ‘normal’ life, walking up the stairs, leaning on the counter, watching the ballgame... Immersed in geological and astronomical thought, these poems ruminate on punctuated equilibrium, the empathy of distance, interactions between dolphin-human-dog-beaver, Japanese tourism, and the possibility that the savior of the trilobites has indeed returned.
