• DESCRIPTION •
Here are the rewards of keeping up: humaffalos, cryptozoology, belief as a hillside (accomplished in reverse), and an all dog chapel of lost dog souls. Whether it’s Thanksgiving or breakfast, the ecstatic and the intimate take every meal together. These poems show friends, lovers, and “Andy Griffiths sold by money-order” all attempting to live unbored among the “parts unknowable and so impossible to tame.” Here, the mayor’s always a real Joe Miller, thinking’s always a thought experiment, and the best way home is through the nest of cub ghosts. Jack Christian's poetry and criticism has appeared
in Jubilat, Black Warrior Review, Mississippi Review, DIAGRAM and more.
