Big Energy Poets Poets for Living Waters Pressing On Literary Publishing
BIG ENERGY POETS
A song of mourning and fury, the Big Energy Poets anthology is an invitation to change the self—and the world—through embodied practice. Amidst ecological catastrophe, listen to the recordings of recently extinct animals while walking through Wal-mart; learn charms for hemlocks to ward off harm; discover the unfamiliar in the familiar in order to re-see; apologize to celery and strawberries. The body of the poem meets here the body of the world. -- Nomi Stone
