Embossed cover, full-color foldout pages, with a postcard and original photogram by Sean D. Henry-Smith—this book, selected by Lucas de Lima as winner of New Delta Review's 5th annual chapbook contest, would do well to stand alone as a collection of mystically lyrical and heavily imagistic poems, but is made into a truly unique object by its meticulous design and construction.

Of poet and artist Sean D. Henry-Smith’s stunning debut of glittering, bodily poetry, Douglas Kearney said, “All buckle and burr, piss and breathlessness, Sean D. Henry-Smith’s quicksilver chapbook careens through stanzas, anxiously asking ‘…will the analytics know me by heart or by guerrilla nose…’? Or gaping mouth? Or gaping eyes? Catch this new poet as he shadowboxes in a night sweat of cultural inheritance: Négritude, The New Yorker, grad school, and Amerie. A compelling debut!”
