THE CONSTITUTION BY BRIAN FOLEY

 SHIPS MARCH 17

 SHIPS MARCH 17

The debut full-length poetry collection from Brian Foley, The Constitutionboldly disrupts and troubles the beliefs we take for granted about ourselves and the rights we hold as true. While investigating ideas of home, love, morality, and loss, the poems also reflect back upon themselves, offering “amendments,” that question and rethink the poems that precede them. Taken together, the poems of The Constitution reveal the instability and flux of the principles we use as the foundation of our selves. 

 

CENTURY SWEPT BRUTAL BY ZACH SAVICH

SHIPS MARCH 17

SHIPS MARCH 17

Zach Savich's fourth book of poetry, Century Swept Brutal, offers a rapt and restless meditation on what Oppen called “the world, weather-swept with which / one shares the century.” In a landscape of on-ramps, mysterious lakes, disgraced social studies teachers, and signs blazing between “hot” and “dog,” these poems seek out their country’s real name while exiled within it. Century Swept Brutal presents the lyrical intelligence and singular observations we have come to expect from Savich's work—but here they carry the strange complexity of fake blood made of real saliva.
