Poetry. "Jake Syersak's debut collection pulses with seeking exaltation, stunning inquiries into what it is to make art in the disintegrating present, refracted through ekphrastic missives to fellow artists. Part entreaty and part ode, the poet's call rings out to reach far-flung companions, uniting us in re-seeing the world through lament and inquiry. Syersak's poems listen for the silent textures, feel through the gravity that separates each from all, somehow discovering a song to show us what resists mere utterance. YIELD ARCHITECTURE is an echolocating cry from the future all the way back to now."—Joshua Marie Wilkinson
