Book of the Week: Postage Due

brandi_postageduecoverJohn Brandi and Steve Sanfield have collaborated on many projects, and it might seem as though their voices meld into a continuity. Which is the working premise of this volume ((Backlog/Tooth of Time Books, 2011) where poems are not identified by author, but presented in an ensemble voice, a voice that is knowing of the local and responsive to the cosmic.

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.

year’s end looking in both directions for an answer
wild musk in the darkest places
a dusting of snow covers last night’s tracks —who’s next?
sitting with a dying friend the seasons change again
a new nurse— her finger too short
in the hands of the medicine man plastic arrows
