New from Cannibal Books! Claire Donato!

Someone Else’s Body
by Claire Donato
32 pages, hand sewn

Read sample poems here:

Claire is a badass. She knows about rooms and hues. She knows how to say it. Here are a few lines from the Harp and Altar poem:

Tonight, a man on the phone poses an inquiry re: two boxes of books by Leon Trotsky.

I cover the mouthpiece, laugh with my co-worker.

Dear Sir or Madam: I am stunned by how easy it is to be a Very Bad Person.

This is one I am excited to be buying. The whole Cannibal subscription is a thing to behold, methinks.
