This is my first chapbook-length book of poems. Presented to you are 17 poems which cycle through love, loss, renewal, and magic using dream sense... human sense... non sense. I pulled together glimpses of my last few years in words and arranged them in four parts: "Non," "Sense," Promise," and "Return."

Excerpt from the poem "Chrysalis":

wet one finger to the wind &
follow the cold on your skin
your weathered face says much
& little
to one who needs to know
where to begin & end
when to follow & when to sing


This book was lovingly handbound by myself using sturdy yellow thread on an apple green gatefold cover. I typed the poems using a Tower Challenger typewriter, laid out every page by hand using the classic cut-&-paste technique, then photocopied it all onto a very pale chartreuse recycled paper. Each cover is also inset with an original cyanotype image in deep prussian blue and white. Each cyanotype is slightly different, but similar to the one in the photographs. You can read more about the process of making them on my blog: http://aijungkim.blogspot.com/2011/11/non-sense-poetry-chapbook.html

"Non Sense" is printed in an edition of 75 copies. Each is numbered and signed by me.

Thanks for looking.
