Outplace is now available at Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop, NYC.

With the Manhattan Bridge rumbling overhead, we make our home amid a vibrant Brooklyn literary culture in DUMBO, near the former stomping grounds of Walt Whitman. Our shop is named after co-founder Jared White’s late grandfather, Harmon “Berl” White, an inspiring entrepreneur and book lover.

We envision Berl’s as a new kind of bookstore, not a dense hive of shelves but a friendly, curated selection of small press books, a personal celebration of great writing with a special platform for handmade and limited edition works handmade by writers and publishers that often slip under the radar.” (more on Berl’s website. Also, this article in The New Yorker: The Curious Persistence of Poetry Shops, by Jill Priluck.

Outplace is now available at Spartacus Books, Vancouver.

Spartacus Books is a nonprofit, volunteer-run bookstore and resource centre offering tools for social change, located from 1973 to 2014, on the edge of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. In 2014, forced from Hastings St. by gentrification we moved to our current location at Commercial Drive and 18th Avenue.

Spartacus Books is a bookstore that is run by a loosely organized collective which operates on a very horizontal consensus decision making structure. It is usually described as a “radical bookstore”, and among its sections are anarchism, “womyn”, “queer lit”,[8] poetry, First Nations, “organizing”, socialism, history and ecology, plus a section of non-specialized “sale” used books.” (more on Wikipedia.)

excerpt in Black Sun Lit: online preview for Vestiges Journal

planet as it was before it knew meat.

the shadow does not move unnecessarily
out of own – by self is
a stillness that no matter generates

movement is sign of necessity that is an othering environment to seek difference
to prove existence as spilling out of matter shell and give reason
ici est là – here is here is made here
