Pimone Triplett & m.nicole.r.wildhood
Two highly regarded Seattle poets give this joint reading from recently published books. Pimone Triplett, who teaches at the University of Washington and is the author of three earlier collections, is here tonight with Supply Chain (Kuhl House Poets/University of Iowa Press).
“Pimone Triplett’s Supply Chain traces the imperatives of indentiture—‘supply,’ here, serving as both modifier and verb of command—from global market forces to the psychological farce of self-regulation. Few writers investigate the anthemic inversions of our collective syntax with such ferocity and nuance. ‘My grammar,’ sings this poet, hand over her reader’s heart, ‘tis of thee.’”— Srikanth Reddy.
M.nicole.r.wildhood, who frequently writes and reviews for Real Change, is here with her debut collection, Long Division (Finishing Line Press).
“The poems in Long Division vocalize the thoughts we have but rarely share: translating the silence between sibling and sibling, parent and child, as well as the languages between two very different people. These poems are honest and brave, acknowledging divisions and barriers while also working to heal them.” –Meg Eden.
