Muriel Leung recommends Metta Sáma's After “Sleeping to Dream”/After After (Nous-zōt Press, 2014)

Muriel Leung, writing for BLOOD JET RADIO recommends "Four Chapbooks to Read by Four Badass Women Poets," including Nous-zōt Press title After “Sleeping to Dream”/After After (2014) by Metta Sáma!

Leung writes:
"Begin at either cover and read until the end. Turn the book over and read another collection entirely. I love a book that toys with the idea of how we traditionally read and Sáma’s chapbook takes the idea of what she calls the “reverse ekphrastics” to lyrically stunning new heights. In After After, Sáma fixates on Argus Panoptes, the hundred eyed giant of Greek mythology and in After “Sleeping to Dream,” the classical takes a modern turn with contemplations on art that traverses natural, bodily, and domestic planes. The level of play operates not only linguistically but also in the handling and reading of the book—a joy in each turn.
"Run by poet Marthe Reed, Nous-zōt Press also features other great titles in its online shop here.
"How to best enjoy this chapbook: FKA Twigs’ “Water Me” plays while you enjoy a piece of pineapple upside down cake, sliced horizontally from the middle first. Brew some mulled wine and invite a lover over at night. If they turn bird and disappear in the day, then so be it."

Interview with Metta Sama

Speaking of Marvels interviews Metta Sama about her Nous-zot chapbook After "Sleeping to Dream"/After After.

"The chapbook was, as I took it, a challenge from Marthe Reed, who asked me if I had more ekphrastic-ish poems, similar to ones I’d published in B O D Y. I did not, and those poems were not ekphrastic in the sense that we talk about it, but reverse ekphrastics: poems that had lived for a very long time under different titles and were then re-titled as being “After” artwork that, when I saw the artwork, made me think of the poems, in very very slant ways."

Copies of After "Sleeping to Dream"/After After may be purchased here.

Nesting Instinct

House, home,, here then there, Jesse Nissim investigates the pull of domestic spaces. Recuperating the distance between self and object, past and present, sheltered and homeless, Nissim returns us in the potencies of the first place, its walls, its loves, its absences, its lack, recovering, bitter and sweet, the walls of the lost.
