COUNTERSONNETS. Readings in June.

'countersonnets' is imminently due out from Contraband Books. it consists of roughly two sections of work, the first dating from late 2010 to summer 2011, and the latter involving a sequence of sonnets written between january & august 2012. glimpses can be made here, here and here.

the cover photograph was provided by the ever-awesome Del LaGrace Volcano. Massive Thanks to David Ashford for putting the book together.
