Presenting a stock-ticker tableau of immanent disaster, these poems witness our own wide-eyed shock turned into reactionary fantasy while at the same time they plumb the sites of our fear, looking to form a primer on the things that terrify us, only to wonder what it is weíre so afraid of. One of 45 [f 48] copies. Shortlisted for the 2013 bpNichol Chapbook Award.
