Poem, A Chapbook consists of one single poem addressing language, grammar, the connection between reader and writer, the physical nature of a chapbook as an artefact, and, most importantly, plain human love. Put it in your coat pocket, snuggled close to your heart, step out of your home, and let this book take you for a walk.
