CAConrad - While Standing in Line for Death
Wave Books presents CAConrad's most recent published collection: eighteen (Soma)tic poetry rituals and their resulting poems. With these rituals as central to their practice, the poet intends "to help us realize at least two things. That everything around us has a creative viability with the potential to spur new thinking and imaginative output and that the most necessary ingredient to bringing the sustainable, humane changes we need and want for our world requires creativity in all lives, every single day." A ritual to overcome depression following the murder of their boyfriend, Earth, opens this treasury of magical, political exercises that seem to crack open the world and stitch it back together, us included.
