$10.00 / Sold out
Poems by Stefan Lorenzutti
Poems about quests. Quiet quests. Fairly unadventurous ones, as quests go. But maybe there are some mini-momentous moments here all the same: in eating a smushed muffin on a windswept mountaintop; or making a big decision (to drop out of college) while methodically reorganizing a rucksack; or failing to find a swimming hole and settling instead for a bath in the dark.
Comes with Whiz, a print of a three-panel adaptation by comix artist John Porcellino (King-Cat, Thoreau at Walden) of a Stefan Lorenzutti poem about trying to remain existentially grounded while whizzing against a barn beneath the fathomless vault of the night sky. 14×21.5cm letterpress print by Rebekah Smith.

Tialys and Salmakia in the White Mountains
scuds for midges
on the surface of Kinsman’s
trembling pond at predawn.
Drinking at water’s edge
then stiffening between laps
my diorama dog detects
Gallivespian spies saddled
I cup some astral flotsam
& splash my face awake.
