First in the neighborhood and then online
Comic Book Bondage Cover of the Day
Record snowpack and the first hot Saturday
No denuciation continues a raffia
They don't believe in times of day
water running over stones
As a dark blue moiré patch
Under the evening star, undelivered mail
Blue sponge by giltish scrubber
wrenches and shovels and coils of wire and Chinese brooms in dizzy informality
-- Sam Lohmann & David Abel

Stand on this picnic bench and look north

The sweet folks at Publication Studio Portland (a.k.a. Jank Editions) have published my book of poems, Stand on this picnic bench and look north. It comes in any number of file-folder colors, and is available as a print-on-demand book or e-book from their website, or at their store at 717 SW Ankeny St. You can also read it online using their "free reading commons."

They say:
Portland poet and editor of Peaches and Bats, Sam Lohmann, gives us a new book, Stand On This Picnic Bench and Look North. This collection of Lohmann's poetry delves into the language of landscapes – urban, rural, and domestic – that is unavoidably entangled in memory. "Americans think all landscape is narrative," and Lohmann indulges this cultural inclination with surprising effects and implications.

Thanks, Publication Studio!
