xx poems - by Jennifer MacBain-Stephens (CC#78)

Crisis Chronicles Press is very happy to announce the publication of xx poems by Jennifer MacBain-Stephens. This is the latest release in our Ninesense series of 9-poem chapbooks by writers you need to read.

"Clearly, MacBain-Stephens understands the texture of words, understands the need to feel them on teeth and tongue.  In one poem, she writes 'We are accustomed to the language of the torso.'  Her language is that of the synapse, firing off psychedelic sparks that invite, intrigue, and infiltrate."
      —Dianne Borsenik, editor at NightBallet Press

xx poems is hand assembled, saddle stapled, bound with white cover stock, black card stock end papers and ivory/cream parchment pages. Cover photo by Steven Smith. 8.5x5.5". ISBN 978-1-940996-30-1.
