A PUNCH IN THE GUT OF A STAR / UN COP DE PUNY AL VENTRE D’UNA ESTRELLA is a bilingual collaborative poetry chapbook that meditates on telepathy in the pandemic. This chapbook is a new collaborative poetry collection by Anne Waldman and Emma Gomis written in English and Catalan. The chapbook aims for telepathy between two poets during a quasi-quarantine or what is colloquially referred to as a 'covid-pod.' On many levels this collaboration is a reminder of poetry's power and of its trajectory as true psychic shelter.
