launch event: The Philosophy of Unclean Things
"I want to believe that everything rots for a reason / that the periodic table of elements / is a book of vegetarian recipes in various states of decay"
It's finally here! After a bit of delay I'm now able to announce that Rosemarie Dombrowski, now the first Poet Laureate for Phoenix, is launching her new collection The Philosophy of Unclean Things on April 1st at the Clarendon in Phoenix. Friends may remember that Rosemarie wrote a few poems inspired by my work during a collaboration between eye lounge and Four Chambers Press; those poems feature in this collection and she kindly selected my work for the cover. I'll be speaking briefly about this at the event, which promises to be a lovely evening on one of the finer rooftops our city has to offer.
