City of Slow Dissolve

By John Chávez

“When city and self merge, poet John Chávez begins his magic: to build the child under our eyes. The child is both cityscape and self under scrutiny, ‘clearly disciplined & put to repair.' The child is parent and body, both the painted canvas and the revealed photograph. Watch this miracle of consciousness unfold in City of Slow Dissolve. Rejoice in our chance to reappraise and reinvent, even recover, our human identity, even our souls, through Chávez's art.”—Hilda Raz, Mary Burritt Christiansen Poetry Series editor

Always Messing With Them Boys

By Jessica Helen Lopez

"Jessica Helen Lopez sings in these poems; they are signal flares drawn from those pivotal moments of living that evoke the feminine, the sensual and the surreal in equal measure. These are the songs of the bruja, the bread-heavy hands of a mother, the beautiful indignation of a hopeless optimist."--Zachary Kluckman
