Afterwording Seven Sevens / Seven Moons

Post date: Dec 10, 2017 4:22:58 AM

Just added to the Introductions page is “Courting the Eyeball Kick: A Short History of Suns and Moons,” my afterword to Seven Suns / Seven Moons, a collection of surreal haiku-like poems I cowrote with Tanya McDonald, published by NeoPoiesis Press in 2016. This page also links to “Before Seven Suns / Seven Moons,” which documents earlier drafts of an introduction and afterword originally proposed for the book. These drafts provide additional information about the book, and may be of interest to those who like seeing editorial revisions. The final afterword explores Allen Ginsberg’s notion of the “eyeball kick” and how it influenced the writing of my “Seven Suns” sequence, which Tanya mirrored with her “Seven Moons” response. Have a look!
