Poetry. In PARISH KREWES, Micah Ballard practices a forensics of writing which traces the communication between living and departed worlds. Conjuring the past while rebuilding the present, these poems seek to celebrate the heritage of New Orleans & explore the esoteric found in everyday ritual. Cover art by David Meltzer.
