Via “Read This Awesome Book“: POST NATIVITY is a long poem in 3 parts–at moments it prays, other moments it’s drunk and falling over, other moments it’s being degraded, other moments it’s looking around at the terrifying landscape of our inhabitable (UN-inhabitable?) spaces.

Joe Hall was born in the woods and is devoted to Cheryl. Black Ocean Press published his first book of poems, Pigafetta Is My Wife, in 2010. With Chad Hardy he wrote The Container Store Vol. I (SpringGun 2012). His poems, fiction, book reviews, and essays have appeared in Gulf Coast, Octopus, HTMLGiant, The Colorado Review, Versal and elsewhere.

SAMPLE TEXT:

Make me your pen, your two turntables and a microphone
Your air raid siren, your silence, the IED
Detonated, my brain slammed against my skull, Beast
Make me your staff, your sword, your brick, your bottle, your rod
You stacked me in a pile of other bodies, you took pictures
