New Poetry

These poems touch down in many parts of the world, from Argentina during the Dirty War to the alleys of the small towns in South Jersey where the author grew up. An extended study of the love poem, this book explores disappearance through political erasure, the march of time, and personal loss.

The poems that comprise this powerful collection are situated on the ley lines of history, and in the treacherous landscapes of Argentina and the heart. If Williams was correct, and it is difficult to find the news in most poems, then I can’t imagine poetry more essential, more vital, than this.” —Paul Guest

JASMINE V. BAILEY’s first collection of poems, Alexandria, won the Central New York Book Award. She has been a Fulbright Fellow in Argentina, received an MFA from the University of Virginia, and is a PhD student at Texas Tech University.
