from Aerial Concave Without Cloud by Sueyeun Juliette Lee NOW AVAILABLE

Meditations on the potencies of light, light's timbers and resonances on spirit and being.
Full-color cover with vellum oversheet, photograph by the author. 24 pages, hand-sewn. $8.00.

the aerial nature of celestial blue
what comes to life
with the smallest cloud
in solidifi ed blue
suffers an enormous loss
such is life for
the blue sky in a wildfl ower
or blue eyes at dusk
that distant blue infi nity
rises sternly in the soul
vibrates in no sonorous crystal
tonalizes only in the
swift muscular engine
we call clarity, not day
concourse of correspondences
limned with blue hands
active in its dynamics
of dematerialization
dream after the fi nesse of ancient galleries
whose calm hallways in infi nite attention
remain, counseling
a possessed good
such a minimum of substance
in which the bell rings
of its own accord

Spring and all

As I work on layout for annie won's chapbook, I have been mulling over the press. What I love best about making chapbooks are the discoveries. I have published some astonishing women poets with Nous-zōt, often discovering the work I want to make books for through reading. Both Metta Sama's chap and the just published Speaking in Tongues without Skulls by Carolyn Hembree have their origin in reading their work in journals. As for annie won's chap, I discovered her intensely visual, innovative work at a reading in Providence, RI, where I was also a guest. Poets are everywhere, its true, but Nous-zōt poets are something special!

Here is a first pass at designing the cover for annie won's before i can sleep.

Cardstock color? Peach? Butter yellow? Something soothing, I think. Perhaps a series in three colors: peach, yellow, warm pink.

Have you ordered your copy yet? Your can order the full spring series or any of Nous-zōt's titles individually at the online store.
