Poetry. There is something super- charged and super-powered about Chris Cheney and his book of poems, LAY ME LOW. You will want, not just to read it, but to be part of it. To participate. Join the movement.
"LAY ME LOW is a trespasser's paradise. It sinks the reader into the sublime; it finds mysticism in the usual. The people in Cheney's poems dictate bizarre requests for their burials; they talk to their horses; they leave their doors unlocked. Cheney's voice is ancient as the wind, yet reminiscent of a weirdo in a chatroom. Narrative and lyricism have rarely been interwoven with such style and feeling. This book shakes with laughter; it sings with sadness. You must read it immediately."—Rachel Glaser
