UNDER MY FEET THE SKY - DAVE MORSE
Over its six books and hundred-plus pages, UNDER MY FEET, THE SKY tours the psychological funhouses of poetry and “unhealth;” bathing itself in recorded thought, detuned verse, griefs large and petty. UNDER MY FEET collects six recent chapbooks—previously unpublished—from New York poet and bookseller Dave Morse. Ranging in style from fragmented, koan-like meditations of place (Big Farm / Sea Side) to the noired narrative enjambments of Intermittent Pistol, and culminating in the dense, sprawling mind journals of Days of My Lives, Morse pitches everything with his voice’s surreal, lilting candor. Individually bound in various sizes and successively laid into one volume by the Circadian Press with artwork from the author, the works together form a tapestry of that interior world between stomach and head: emotional terrains of illness, dream, travel, and study.
