Nothing. No One. Nowhere. No. 5 – Edited by Sonnet Mondal. Release: 5.7.13
It is with deep humility and gratitude that Virgogray Press has now released a new collection of poetry by Missouri poet, Mary B. Harrison. Beneath Our Feet has been a long time coming from Virgogray Press, and a production process that took longer than initially planned, the collection has finally arrived. I am pleased with the outcome, as Mary has expressed satisfaction, as well. It is a beautiful and sad collection of verse that really draws from life, but reflects it in snapshots of poetic expression. I am pleased to have this grouping of poetry, this body of art in the Virgogray Press library among the other gems of the underground and independent literary canon.
In Beneath our Feet, Mary B. Harrison’s poems are ghost-like snapshots, visual memories, history poetic as conveyed in the writer’s verse. Reflections at the evening of reality, Harrison’s poetry is a force of nostalgia behind a quiet, yet sharp voice. Astounding visions, moments weighted with sadness and notes of depression, the memories in a life of loss. Whether the curse of longevity, or good fortune, Beneath our Feet is a solemn account, a creative vision sculpted by the poetry of the thought-full poet deeply interred in her craft as readers witness through her movie reel instances of poetic imagery and detail. Still, this collection is a brief candle, a respite poignant and deliberate, a noted sharing by a poet brave and skilled, a lucid withdrawal into the whispers of fine literature.
Virgogray Press is proud to present the latest collection from poets A. Molotkov and John Sibley Williams in a beautiful duet of verse, The End of Mythology. In the End of Mythology, A. Molotkov and John Sibley Williams have come together to create a new collection that is a responsive, almost fluid stream of poetry. The poetry of this collection has subtle and slightly haunting overtones in some areas, and radiant beams of light in others. Poets, A. Molotkov and John Sibley Williams have orchestrated a refined and tender, yet stunning symphony conveyed through minimalistic stanzas that draw the senses and the conscious to the fore. A seamless bifurcation of two great underground poets, The End of Mythology is a graceful masterpiece worthy to all poetry enthusiasts of our time. Poems in this book have appeared previously in publications such as, Calliope Nerve, Four and Twenty, Gobbet Magazine, IMPROV 2012 Anthology, M Review, Ofi Press, Small Doggies, Toe Good Poetry, and The Tower Journal.
