Poetry. New York poet Anselm Berrigan plays with space like a painter with the prosody of a poet. Written as infinitely looping sentences around the page, the rectangular poems of COME IN ALONE act as a frame to space, outrunning thought with quickness, openness, humor, and protest. They are simultaneously inviting and impermeable, making familiar language uncanny with every turn around the page.
Anselm Berrigan is a poet, teacher, and editor of offhand accumulations. He is the author of various books, chapbooks, and other idiosyncratic publications, including PREGRETS (Black Square Editions, 2021), SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY (Wave Books, 2018), COME IN ALONE (Wave Books, 2016), Zero Star Hotel, They Beat Me Over the Head with a Sack, Free Cell, Notes from Irrelevance, and Skasers (with John Coletti). He is surviving in New York City, and teaching where the work is available.
