Safia Elhillo's Suite for Ol' Dirty is the fifth chapbook in our microseries. Using a patchwork of repurposed texts, Elhillo investigates what it means to have a self when the site on which the self is built comes under the intense scrutiny that accompanies fame. Her poem is a tender space held open for its subject and those who knew him or who thought they did. Refusing to locate him absolutely, Elhillo's poem insists on the ultimate privacy of the body and the name.

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.)
