Suspicion of Bears.

Available to own now: Pedro Ponce's Homeland: a Panorama in 50 States, brought to you by Seven Kitchens Press.

Seven Kitchens is operated by Ron Mohring, who adjuncted at the school where I was a student, and along with my fellow interns we converted a spare room in the offices into a party every Tuesday and Thursday. Being referred to as amazing with regards to any work I contribute is as wholly, eminently satisfying as being paid, and I am reassured again I'm in the right line of work. Homeland is my favorite title on Seven Kitchens - its form is more mutable, and it's a mystery! I have not stopped trying to figure out which poem is about which state. There are many delicious references to bears (my favorite, a part of the "Persons of Interest" sequence, is available to be read at the Hotel St. George - it's #2). It is a vital little book.

I've also designed other titles:

Each are $7, hand-sewn, and fetching as hell. The cute factor at Seven Kitchens is a notch below cat videos.
