MEDITATIONS BEFORE THE WINDOWS FAIL

by George Looney

George Looney’s Meditations Before the Windows Fail discovers that, in a world composed of loss, our task is two-fold: to translate the world into meaning, and to turn toward each other when that translation is found to be, as it always is, inadequate.

NASTY WOMEN POETS: An Unapologetic Anthology of Subversive Verse

Edited by Grace Bauer & Julie Kane

This timely collection of poems speaks not just to the current political climate and the man who is responsible for its title, but to the stereotypes and expectations women have faced dating back to Eve, and to the long history of women resisting those limitations.

Necessary Angels

NEIGHBORHOOD OF GRAY HOUSES poems by Derek Annis

by Derek Annis

The poems in Derek Annis’ debut collection, Neighborhood of Gray Houses, wander through a landscape darkened by childhood abandonment and loss, before coming to rest in a home illuminated by new life and cautious optimism. The speaker comes to consciousness at a time when parental contracts have been breached, in a world falling apart, and as it falls apart, the poems become increasingly surreal, increasingly sure of the world’s uncertainty. Ultimately, the birth of the speaker’s daughters provides direction, a way out of the neighborhood of gray houses, to a place with more solid footing.

Of a Monstrous Child: An Anthology of Creative Relationships

by edited by Nate Liederbach & James Harris

Unlike many anthologies, the focus of this collection is not on its contributors’ individual pieces, but the relationships between its featured authors. Assembled as organically as possible, these poets and prosists have partnered themselves—as mentor and mentee—in an exchange of introductions and creative works.

Of Earth

by John Daniel

Reflecting Daniel’s deep affinity for the land and lives of the given world, Of Earth offers poems of praise that do not deny suffering and death but find them essential to the vast, intricate and mysterious territory of being. “Nature,” he writes in his introduction, “means having been born—microbes, humans, the entire cosmos itself, with all the living, dying, love, loss, joy, horror, beauty, and questions about ends and beginnings that the cosmos has so far evolved. Like all true literature, nature poetry belongs to the ongoing conversation the human community is conducting through time about who we are and where we have come from, about where we are and who our kinfolk are, about how we live and how we might live, about how our lives should matter.”

Old & Lost Rivers

by J.T. Ledbetter

Winner of the 2011 Idaho Prize for Poetry, selected by Ray Amorosi

Old & Lost Rivers is a collection of poems about people who have been beaten down by bad weather, poor crops, and little love save what their memories have put away, much like the clothes they came to each other in, now in a cedar chest or in the root cellar with potatoes, jars and eggs. Many of the poems are harsh, even cruel—poems John Van Doren has called, “a report of a vanishing world that was always achingly inarticulate and therefore of violent heart.”—yet there is release of one kind or another, through fantasy or revenge: often it comes in a tired acceptance of what is. And, as in life, there is the momentary humor. It is almost always short-lived, but it is there and it is honest.

Oyster Perpetual

by Austin LaGrone

Winner of the Idaho Prize for Poetry 2010, selected by Thomas Lux

Austin LaGrone has written a first book of exceptional singularity, wholeness, and focus of vision. He can be playful and tragic. His poems are deadly serious, even when they are funny, and he is unafraid of being understood. He is also unafraid of making fun of himself (or his persona) because he understands he is part of the great human joyful mess. He sings from right in the middle of it, he praises, he satirizes, his heart is broken yet he, his poems, still have hope.
