Announcing the Release of Cabin Fever/Fossil Record by Dan Brady

Cabin Fever/Fossil Record

Dan Brady's new chapbook is an accumulation and an erasure, it's a mystery and a maze with the key built into its guts. The book contains two poems that are a part of what Brady's been calling Leroy Sequences. He explains a bit about the process here. The form of these pieces really works to amplify and distort the content. It's hard to capture just what the poems do, so you might well have to grab a copy and see for yourself. Just know that it's something that can alter the way you are in the world in the way that good things do.

An Elegy

Stephanie's Balzer's latest chapbook is a naked elegy in fragments. Exactly a year after her comrade's battle with cystic fibrosis, she began to chronicle the events and convoluted emotions of his last month in the hospital. Her witness, told in snapshots posted to Twitter, is an inverted, honest, surprisingly playful narrative of grief and love.







ICUs are violent. one night a person coded in the                                       Sat Dec 29 04:04:09 2012
room directly in my line of sight. an alarm sounded
& bell flashed. i stood up & watched.

holding his hand i narrated it to him, sedated, the                                         Fri Dec 28 23:34:13 2012
people eating live scorpions, in an attempt to be
normal. it was evening.

each contestant dove into a vat of black oil to find                                        Fri Dec 28 23:29:33 2012
a gallon paint container. inside were live scorpions
for opposing team members to eat.

one night “fear factor” came on. i left it because                                           Fri Dec 28 23:28:51 2012
we’d had a convo a few weeks earlier about how
much we hate joe rogan.

The poem draws upon a number of sources: a Standard Operating Procedure manual for Camp Echo at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp, the testimony of Abu Ghraib torture victims, the words of U.S. soldiers, the Bible, the Code of Hammurabi, and various other texts.
