Drawing from his experiences as a freelance journalist covering European affairs, the author reworks textual sources to offer revealing glimpses into the latent political machinery underlying our discourse. The poems serve as a testimony and reappropriation of language, providing a unique perspective on a continent wrestling with agency. This collection unveils the complexities of European experience, resonating with the challenges of the contemporary political landscape.Praise for the Author and WorkImplausibly yet necessarily, enditem. shimmers with what could be called a ’poetics of logistics,’ re-arranging and recasting the bureaucratic language of distribution and circulation into a language of transcultural revolution. Jeremy Allan Hawkins presents a portrait of ’the European project’ that reveals the hypocrisy behind borders closed to bodies but open to markets, as well as tracks the role Global English plays in both distorting and codifying lived, local experience. However, Hawkins also shows us that ambivalence and malleability are written into the language, such that ’end item’ becomes enditem., less a finalized product for sale than the poetic imperative to keep connecting, configuring, and mobilizing.- Mia You, author of I, Too, Dislike It (1913 Press, 2016) Jeremy Allan Hawkins’s collection enditem. employs collage to juxtapose pieces of current events - war, entertainment, commerce, geopolitical haggling and its human cost - against one another. Built with the language of news articles, Hawkins crafts a sharp portrait of our lived moment, vibrating with the ’uncertainties that persist,’ and ’political catastrophic stupidity’ of global proportions. This project emphasizes the schism between our felt and lived realities, amid the ongoing violence of wars, displaced communities, destruction. Readers will find themselves entranced with the language we are fed, only to have it reveal itself as poem, riddle, and ouroboros.- Avni Vyas, author of Little God (Burrow Press, 2021)

    Jennifer Chrystie
    ‘There’s a touch of both Dickinson and Larkin in Jennifer Chrystie’s mature exhumation of the tales and tropes of family. Figures who could so easily flit like phantoms in her well honed poetry are palpably enjoying an after-life in the poet’s ability to redeem through deep understanding. The collection arcs from, at one extreme, the parsimonies of the household, to the transce...

  • One Kiss
    Edward V Bonner
    The very title of Edward V. Bonner's first volume of poetry, One Kiss (Ingram, 2015), suggests some ways in which the poems inside balance the universal with the particular.
