SCENTED RUSHES
by Nada Gordon
If all the feelings of love could be expressed in one place, we would be reading Nada Gordon’s Scented Rushes. In the very public romances of Nada Gordon, this book of yearning stands out as poetry. The writing, word for word, intensifies our senses stimulating a languor of lushness against the grain of the towering lover and the elusive beloved. The poems refresh desire.
“Dear Reader: Scented Rushes will have you jumping into and up in bed with its hot-blooded romp phrasings and honeyed ecstasies, the very stuff of philosophy and all that, all crowning achievement, and ‘you couldn’t get drunker.’”
– Stacy Doris


YES THING NO THING
by Edwin Torres
“…the language of a slow landscape pulling you into its design, a psychophysical world where you are, truly, in the pages…This is a book of the other place, the other language, our language.”
– Alice Notley
Edwin Torres’s poetry—full of complex graphic experiments and daring sonic explorations—opens new creative possibilities, simultaneously challenging and delighting our intelligence. Coming on strong with humor and mystery, Edwin Torres spins magical multilingual webs of words intended to change the world.
