Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


A surreal and speculative poetry detailing the edges of social interactions; a poetry mapping the social relationships calmly executed around madness. A man who admires the wolf at his door. A daughter who is increasingly unmanageable as she transforms into a mule. A woman who cannot stop growing to match the gargantuan intruder in her yard. A town brings its children to a dark master to learn to dance. Broken characters dealing with the unreality of their lives, interacting with each other in an unpredictable social landscape where the normal laws of civics, biology, and physics become blurred and changeable.
