I, NE: Iterations of the Junco

New Book Available Through Small Fires Press!

I, NE: Iterations of the Junco is a collaboration between John Chavez, Megan Gannon, Rachel May, and Joshua Ware. Illustrations by Meaghan Perry.

Letterpress-printed on 18 file cards in a handmade paper slipcase. Edition of 100.


From the Author's Note on the Process:

We begin with the line, “Juncos hollow white noise limbs dreaming through the ice,” then we augment and erase. We cross-pollinate. We become through nonce form, arbitrary delimiting, & spatial re-orientation.

Of becoming, or more particularly, of becoming-imperceptible, Deleuze and Guattari write: “the truth [is] that all becomings are molecular. The molecular has the capacity to make the elementary communicate with the cosmic: precisely because it effects a dissolution of form that…guarantees a continuum by stretching variation far beyond its formal limits.”

The becoming-imperceptible of the collaborative process helps us follow a line of flight where: “We are no longer ourselves, [where] we have been aided, inspired, multiplied.”

God, Sebastian, Amy by Ana Božičević

Flying Guillotine Press announces Ana Božičević's new chapbook God, Sebastian, Amy!

Cittadino in Campagna di New Jersey

The green by itself didn't mean anything;
it needed shapes to inform it.

The long hope of the long hill—
the incline spoke, the hill didn't.

On the burnt dog-grass, at the foot of the V tree
its shadow drew an X. —Me, a denominator?

—No, you were the line in tree's fraction:
one present point where bird-life in the crown

divided by death on the grass, equaled a soul…
The hill curved, now in starlight.

There was a sensation of falling. And how the hill changed.
—& the length of hope? —Didn't. Only the soul—

The soul was painted over and over, like an outlet.

God, Sebastian, Amy is a 28 page, hand stitched book of poems printed in an edition of 74. There are three different covers with photographs by Shannon Davies and Tony Mancus. They are bound with red string!

$8 includes shipping.

If you'd like a copy, please visit Flying Guillotine Press.

PS--Look for Flying Guillotine at AWP. We'll be the ones wearing shirts. And pants, most likely.

Linnea Ogden's Another Limit

In “Another Limit," Linnea Ogden maps a skeptic's fugitive geography of the imagination. In poems with titles like “Submerged Lands Act,” this poet continuously draws and redraws the jurisdiction of her literary consciousness, always seeking “the answer to this particular border / dispute” in poems of considerable formal grace and emotional honesty. — Srikanth Reddy

Linnea Ogden explores boundaries both thematically and in her syntax. But most amazing: she makes legal language sing. — Rosmarie Waldrop
