OK, good to know. Read more here.

You Exist. Details Fol­low. is Stu­art Ross’s sev­enth full-length col­lec­tion of poet­ry. In these poems, Ross veers in oppo­site direc­tions: nar­ra­tive con­fes­sion­al poems, and works that might be con­sid­ered abstract expres­sion­ist, and a lot both in between and beyond those bound­aries. Each poem breathes with the sig­na­ture weird­ness, the sharp wit, and gen­tle awe that Ross is known for. Here you’ll find con­found­ing cen­tos, frac­tured son­nets, deliri­ous lists, poems com­posed through sur­re­al­ist strate­gies, a new addi­tion to Ross’s auto­bi­o­graph­i­cal Razovsky series, and more.
