Every once in a while, an event occurs that brings home simply, fully, exactly what it is you have set out to do, seeing it fully realized in an evening, unexpected, unforgettable. The launch of STANFORD CHEUNG‘s full-length debut, STRUCTURES FROM THE STILL (Akinoga Press, Baltimore) with JC BOUCHARD (Let This Be the End of Me. Hybrid Heaven, Montreal) was such a night. Thank you, poets. knife | fork | book
STRUCTURES FROM THE STILL, the debut full-length poetry collection of Stanford Cheung, is an imperative to recall and forge an internal landscape bound by kites, transmission towers, and the shifting sky — where seemingly unrelated subjects become the very acts of narrative and perception.
