Book Release and Reading

bedouin books is pleased to announce pamphlet poets series no.4, Jamaica, by Travis Cebula. ISBN 978-0-9832987-1-7 / 10pp / $5.00

“Travis Cebula’s projective poetry opens out of a conversation: ‘and so this is a green island.’ with only this grounding placeholder, there begins an isolation and rythym of touch, sight and sound, at once comprehensive and exploitative of gaps in sense and space. these concise perceptions in the spirit of the process and form of Charles Olson and Robert Creeley, invite us to intimate a complete vision of place and experience.”

(from the back cover)
