Aaron Kent // Perfectly Reasonable Justifications for Nuclear Apocalypse
[20 pp. // hand-bound // variant covers // run of 30]
Bound in two variant cover designs, Aaron Kent’s Perfectly Reasonable Justification for Nuclear Apocalypse is a reckoning, ‘a prayer in silence’ to the ethical difficulties of raising a family in the 21st century. Treading a tightrope of generosity and anxiety, these poems are entrenched with a religious materiality that verges on the baroque, all the while keeping their language taut to the point of wiry frission.
Tom Snarsky // Two Songs
[16 pp. // hand-bound // run of 20]
[Free PDF Edition // Two Songs – Tom Snarsky]
Woven together with the attentive earnestness of a music afficiando flicking through their vinyl collection, this pamphlet from Tom Snarsky is composed of two ‘sides’: October (1994) and All Partial Evil. Considering the nature of time, the early days of AIM usernames, and the ‘great poetry farm in the sky’, this pamphlet is a generous tribute to all the late nights spent listening to music in childhood bedrooms.
