j/j hastain interview at Speaking of Marvels

Nous-zot author j/j hastain talks about her chapbook APOPHALLATION SKETCHES at Speaking of Marvels:

"The piece “A Totem You Can Wear” is a strange little drama, an opera mid-pronunciation, an opera in which the she in the shape, is the shape and the he in the shape is hitched onto her. She lets him stay there. He lives off of her. The notion of feral synthesis is the drive which accompanies the content that exists in all of the pieces within this work, but so, where such synthesis meets sound, there at the bottom of the sea, where the earrings are inter-tangling, getting lost in the dust of the disappearing reef. Something ancient and magical is happening. Maybe it is because such earrings, entangled on reef bodies, will catch the eyes of folks above the surface of the water as they are throwing things into the sea that damage the reef. Maybe it is all to slow down the process of humans throwing things into the sea. Maybe the glints will encourage people to swim in the sea with as much awe and awareness as is possible for them to do in their own bodies should they focus enough."

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."
