Fresh off the press comes its th sailors life / still in treetment from legendary poet bill bissett. In this latest collection, bissett deepens his tradition of experimenting with form and sound. In addition to playing with the spatial and the sonic, its th sailors life / still in treetment features over forty illustrations from the author, opening a complementary extralinguistic channel of communication with readers.
bissett’s poems are both timeless and timely. Happy to compromise the conventions of grammar but never compromising on feeling, bissett explores grief, love, and loss in his inimitable style, reshaping language anew.
its th sailors life / still in treetment is abundant with bissett’s trademark brand of charming, blunt observation and humor. From “did i evr tell yu abt th time i swam with a vampire”:
yu want i realize
life is xcellent not
uv kours not alwayze
but life itself is xcellent”
