by Patrick Durgin

I do small, press the issue. I think big
About us, our "we" little locution.
We supercede the same sensate instinct
And ready each their distribution.
You lie in wait for proper reflection
Of this amorous determination.
To each their own totality and each
Another's fond retaliation.
I know you know, I do the do; what's more
Is what repeats. Like "nothing" else, "nothing,"
No likeness invents a seed, a spore,
No one. From many comes none, but rushing.
In any sound resemblance we mistook
Identical digits built for a book.

Poesy of Shivers
by Mike McQuillian


Small Press Distribution

Mails her books upon books upon books.

All unfamiliar to me, until their pages

Lasso me, an unruly pig that she has given her

Life for a while. After I shower, she reads me

Poetry that pushes my mind outwards, rumbling

River overflowing its banks. I feel the poetry

Every time I touch her, hear it in her

Shivers. We have our fingertips, parted lips, and mail from

The Steven Fama one is totally the best. You should give him two books.
