Pattern Exhaustion, by Nate Pritts










“This is the kind of poetry that could keep someone from killing themselves. This is the real deal. Read it out loud from front to back in one sitting and maybe you’ll remember yourself.”

-Nick Demske

“…this is not a normal Nate Pritts book of frenetic exuberance. But its bleakness offers exactly the kind of catharsis I really, really need right now and maybe you do too.”

-Darcie Dennigan


Sunburn / Freezer Burn, by Colleen Barry

Old Man (front)









“With a voice that is plaintive, deft & deceptively straightforward, it is as if Colleen Louise Barry has made an atom bomb out of a pencil, a rubber band & a bandaid. This delightful little book is full of intimacies of dream & sometimes the devastating surprise of waking up.”

-Dean Young
