this post-strucuralist manuscript explores the interplay of meaning between words as he deconstructs the language. the poems within often began as notecards, forcing the poet to observe the taut space of meaning without devolving into narrative.
cover art created by artist Leticia R Bajuyo alludes to the rain as the minnows float in the air, a nod to the experimental and unconventional nature of the poems inside.
expected publication date is July 2020.
“The tactile sting of these poems startles us from our too-hurried, numb existence; for those who can never find a unique sentiment, the notecards are gifts their recipients will cherish in nightstand drawers for years to come.” – Kristi Petersen Schoonover, Editor, 34 Orchard Literary Journal
