"[These are] poems of vivid, precise and inventive language informed by science and scientific lore both wonderful and weird." —Carolyn Wright.
"Like a zombie in a room full of formaldehyde-pickled brains, I kept muttering 'give me more.' This collection is an insane delight." —D.A. Powell
"[Brumett returns] the reader again and again to the body in all its malformations, odd pieces and purposes, and, ultimately, its capability for bliss." —Rachel Morgan

With your generous support, we have been able to make a donation to plant 40 trees in the Coconino National Forest in northern Arizona, an area devastated by the Schultz fire of 2010. Thanks to the National Forest Foundation for their efforts.
We are excited to announce the publication of our second chapbook, Boyer Rickel's Tempo Rubato, a suite of prose poems in which "each sentence vibrates with its own internal melody, both a stunning and unforgettable composition in grief and a riveting song in praise of life," writes poet Jason Zuzga.
