Hello and welcome to Shirt Pocket’s catalog.
WOULD-BE DOGWOOD : : : : : Merrill Gilfillan is a masterful poet, able to compress/create experience in almost impossibly rich stanzas. Do yourself a favor and pick this up.
mIEKAL aND is the laboratory in which these poems came to be. Sound them in to round them out.
A Year Book: 1941-2016 : : : : Jim McCrary turns the memoir inside out and boils it down to a stabbing point. ADD TO CART
Whiskey Volume : : : : Kirk Keen’s poems are composed from the ground up, reaching towards the meridian, dragging personal histories forward into the light, getting just high enough in the sky to better see the land. ADD TO CART
the selected jesus: : : : jj rowan is the secret hero of ambient crossings. Read this at your own risk. You may transform into a lovely boat safe and at home in the sky.
21 SKIES : : : : This is visual poetry, diagrams, lyric poetry translated into the nightmares of trees, poem as object / image. It’s really good, folks, and it’s by Andrew Brenza.
MODEL FIGURE : : : : This chapbook opens its door to you in the voice of Caroline Bergvall: “The value of dislocation, of being disoriented, which calls on more movement, is part of the process of orientation.” Declan Gould orients us in the figure model’s body and thinks us through.
THE VISITANT : : : : Sweet nightmare visions and out of body clarity. Jenny MacBain-Stephens gives us poetry that will last.
SAME DIFFERENCE : : : : Call and response, layered voices, echoes, old school hip hop end word rhyme chime, Toby Altman has cooked up something different and something the same with this one. Description doesn’t really do it justice, but luckily it’s only $8. Check it out.
