Available now from Incessant Pipe Print Works:
M.P. Carver’s “SELACHIMORPHA”


“This poem was a nuisance, crouching
_____just out of sight, underneath my
_____windowsill at night, murmuring
_____the Kaddish. I couldn’t sleep. I
_____threw things at the poem: balled
_____up dresses, necklaces, hair
_____brushes… It wandered around,
_____dripping, scaring the cat…

So, I’m leaving it here with you. Good luck.

I’m making a break for it…”

– M.P.  (From the afterword)



Selachimorpha:
A desperation trying to resolve itself deliberately,
Stepping down the shark’s spine
toward our impossible lover.
Asking, reminding, naming.
M.P. Carver never disappoints.

– J.D Scrimgeour
