How Like Foreign Objects by Alexis Orgera

Congratulations to HTMLGIANT contributor Alexis Orgera, whose How Like Foreign Objects was just released by H_NGM_N BKS:

Dean Young had this to say about Orgera’s poems:

Alexis Orgera’s poems perpetually, vitally involve the reconceiving and reenacting of the means of intimacy even as they say again and again, I can no longer be myself.  These are love poems between strangers who may for a moment celebrate and endure recognition; their voice is arch, angelic and at odds with itself, mercurial in its metaphoric riches, captivating in improvisational zeal, beautiful, and impossible not to love.

If you’d like to purchase the book, you can do so from H_NGM_N for $14.95. Click on the donate/PayPal button once you get to the HLFO page.

      Congratulations, Alexis! I’m putting this on my “to-get-soon” list. Looking forward to it.

      I said it before, I’ll say it now: Alexis is one of the bravest poets out there. She is also in a room behind me.
