From the Winner of the Whiting Award, an American Book Award, and finalist for a Lambda, Tommy Pico’s Feed is an epistolary recipe for the main character, a poem of nourishment, and a jaunty walk through New York’s High Line park, with the lines, stanzas, paragraphs, dialogue, and registers approximating the park’s cultivated gardens of wildness. Mark Conway’s spare and imaginistic poems in rivers of the driftless region concern the implications of eternity: which offers no past or future but rather an ever-present now.nThe book is described by Mary Szybist “a dazzling quest-rodeo of the inner life” that takes us “inside the lush, divided terrain of the mind.” Join these two poets as they read from their latest collections.
