Poetry. Drama. In this dramatic poem in three acts, Barniskis introduces readers to Mimi Sprig and Xavier Box, tiny adversaries engaged in "an almost secret war." Their poetic monologues shimmer with longing as they circle, listening for signs of life and learning to read each other. MIMI AND XAVIER STAR IN A MUSEUM THAT FITS ENTIRELY IN ONE'S POCKET was a finalist in the Anomalous Press Poetry Chapbook Contest, judged by Cole Swensen, and is being co-released as an LP with music by composer Nick Jaffe.
