Shy Green Fields, by Hugh Behm-Steinberg



Shy Green Fields, by Hugh Behm-Steinberg
No Tell Books, $15
Available at Lulu NOW
Available at Amazon & B&N SOON

Hugh Behm-Steinberg’s Shy Green Fields is in company with books by poets who wrote about glorious ordinary days in extraordinary times. In a pillowbook of a hundred seven-line poems, this life, as it is written, has the shadow of Robert Creeley’s A Day Book behind it, and the shadow of Federico Lorca in his famous, reiterated line, “Green, I love you, green, …” a specific, and pacific, emotional response in difficult political times. Behm-Steinberg’s book is, likewise, carnal, primal, and intellectual. Shy Green Fields exults in experience, “Such versions!”

The Myth of the Simple Machines, by Laurel Snyder



The Myth of the Simple Machines, by Laurel Snyder
No Tell Books, $15
Available at Lulu NOW
Available at Amazon & B&N SOON

The gorgeous simplicity of Laurel Snyder's language makes all the possibilities—and the impossibility—of living stand out starkly. Her machines are thought machines, memory machines, the machines of false and daily logic, and we recognize them all. And, of course, they don't work this time either, but Snyder has found the poignancy in this, and more than that, she has found its meaning. A startling and touching book.
