Safia Elhillo's Ars Poetica is the sixth chapbook in our microseries. Here is a young woman’s song of loss and love; of the wonder and confusion that come of living between places memorial and actual, between languages, and between the loves of late childhood and those of adulthood. In Elhillo’s poem, we are offered a place in which a kind of redemption is possible, if only we can find it: a country where “the plants would stay alive”, and the assertion that poetry might just be that place.

Because microseries chapbooks can be sent in a regular envelope, no delivery confirmation service is available. But it also means shipping is inexpensive! (And, if you order a microseries chapbook in combination with other things, the microseries chapbook won't add shipping to your order.)
