“After Leaving, Before Arrival” in The Quieting

Friends, I’ve finally entered the letterpressed world. Platypus Press just finished pressing and sewing these beauuutiful books called The Quieting: an anthology of softness and light — ten poets, ten poems. I’m in love with the compression/lightness/texture of this¬†project, and I’m beyond grateful to have been included, and to have received my copy in my mailbox today. My poem “After Leaving, Before Arrival” is about leaving home with my love to head east this summer, about decisions, precipice, and faith.

If you love art, poems, and/or gorgeous objects, I recommend you buy one of these 50 books. They’re $5, and the book will cross an ocean to be yours.
