new from above/ground press: A Web Of Holes by Shannon Maguire

A Web Of Holes
Shannon Maguire

urns the animal
resists all mobilities
yawns new hostage wars
dwelling place thirsts
incisors on wet tissues
come above, land where she is
eating anyway

published in Ottawa by above/ground press
December 2012
a/g subscribers receive a complimentary copy

This is Maguire’s second above/ground press title, after the collection Vowel Wolves & Other Knots (2011).
