Click this post for a downloadable pdf of Ringing, as well as a flash version illustrated Rauan himself. There is also a section for comments. We encourage you to not only comment and discuss the poems and collection as a whole, but the site itself--everything from thoughts on the experience of reading the chap in the format it's in to more technical concerns about the functionality of the site, problems viewing it, navigability, etc.
From the book:
Like ships leaning together licking each other’s shoulders, we fall down and dig at the earth. Fervently. Like jackals. Fire’s leaping from hill to hill, and my nerves are swaying like seaweed. I have learned to die. And not to. My veins are filled with milk 11.

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.
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.”Paypal or check to:

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.
