Poems are something we live among every day. They surround us in ways we don’t always expect, and ground us in time and space as nothing else does. An exploration of poetry’s relationship with time—how language settles and shifts over the course of moments, hours, seasons—that is what this annual project is meant to invite. Our lives transpire in their ordinary and extraordinary way, with the curious presence of our shared language running like a thread throughout.
Our second annual hand-bound, limited-edition calendar features one poem per month for 13 months (including January 2015). With poems by Kazim Ali, Sommer Browning, Christophe Casamassima, Don Mee Choi, Ryan Eckes, Farrah Field, Joan Kane, Bhanu Kapil, Rachel Levitsky, Anna Moschovakis, Jared White, and Simone White. Artwork and illustrations by Essye Klempner.
Limited to an edition to 150.
