Lisa Bickmore | Ephemerist

Join poet Lisa Bickmore for a reading and signing of her new collection, Ephemerist

the speakers of the poems imagine many provisional homes. They make a study of shelter: in the harbors of memory; in art's forms and improvisations; in spirit houses; in the body. Each proves transient. In these poems, each speaker finds that the places she thinks she knows are, in the end, knowable only tangentially and partially, if at all. Shelter is a pharmakon, a substance that is both medicine and toxin. The book imagines, as substitution and remedy, a practice of making what cannot last, what will always disappear, a practice that might be termed ephemerism.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of Ephemerist from The King's English.
