Book of the Week: over our heads

ketchek_overourheadscover

Michael Ketchek’s poignant 2010 chapbook from Swamp Press featured fine letterpress in a bronze rectangular yet hexagonal shape with a dark blue inset circle that shifts at the top of each page from the cover and throughout the collection, which was impossible to recreate in this format.

You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

Do you have a chapbook published 2009 or earlier you would like featured as a Book of the Week? Contact us for details.

Haiku featured in the Book of the Week Archive are selected by Jim Kacian, following a concept first explored by Tom Clausen, and are used with permission.





twilight the ash still in the shape of the cigarette
sometimes it's just better to Boop Boop de Boop
my hand too large a child reaches through the fence and plucks the raspberry
Bukowski is dead he always suspected he would be
dancing at the day care I'm the Maypole
midday sun all that chrome outside the biker bar
