“A Net of Momentary Sapphire” has Arrived!

Just in time for poetry month, A Net of Momentary Sapphire by R. Kolewe has arrived at Talonbooks headquarters! A broken long poem, this singular net is an interrogation of the aftermath of twentieth-century modernism, looking both backwards and forwards – an eternal return. The repeating sequences mesmerise.

From “14.”:

“To undo these messengers
who see everything who
remember nothing

who speak in silence
or rumoured thunder never
heard here, imagined maybe”

The poems in A Net of Momentary Sapphire echo forward throughout the collection, harmonizing with themselves. Order a copy here.
