SEMBLANCE by Chris Pusateri (Dusie, 2013)

Hello friends,

This chapbook was created for the 2013 AWP Dusie project out of materials that were close at hand.  I have a few extra copies, and you can have one sent to your doorstep, totally gratis, if you send a postal address to chrisdotpusateri at hotmail.  Offer is good while supplies last.

The following is from the book's postscript:

This book is comprised exclusively of lines and fragments taken from the texts of other Dusie authors.

Thanks to the following for their language:

Caroline Crumpacker, Cynthia Atkins, Cara Benson, Maureen Thorson, Michelle Naka Pierce, Mel Nichols, Daniel Gutstein, Pattie McCarthy, Jess Rowan, Danielle Vogel, Elizabeth Treadwell, Carleen Tibbets, Carmen Giménez Smith,, Michael Ruby, Mark Lamoureux, Hugh Behm-Steinberg, Megan Kaminski, Nathaniel Otting, Maria Damon, Jill Stengel, Marthe Reed, Larkin Higgins, Lee Ann Brown, Jennifer Firestone, Sarah Sarai, TA Noonan, Susana Gardner, Sarah Anne Cox and Dana Teen Lomax.

Cover and poem text was handwritten using a fine-point black Sharpie.  Covers are brown paper lunch sack; paper is government-issue 20lb recycled printer paper.

Handwritten, because handwriting, the original font choice, is something of a dying typography.  The language of others because this compels me to be a more attentive and diligent reader of those listed above.
