"In language alternately inventive and conversational, these poems speak for this disorienting moment when our global habitats and system are in crisis." —Caitlin Grace McDonnell, Pandemic City
The meaning of an instant within a string of moments is the matter of emit_time, a collection of poems that peers into the intricate whorls of time and existence. This collection engages mirrors, lenses, and the act of taking in vignettes of ourselves. Reflections of events, both banal and unexpected, impact our perception of reality’s durations and elicit shifting perspectives as a series of close-ups of dizzying mosaics coalescing into images when viewed from afar, breviaries of a simultaneous past, present, and future.
What is it like to hold a poem the way we hold a cup? Can poems help us carry difficult emotions to grasp concepts of coexisting accord and multiplicity? Or are poems merely vessels of volcanic vapor, ethereal and untouchable? emit_time posits the former, serving poems as invitations to envision fluidities in the process of existence while bucking the throes of change-wearing slips of time. $15.99
