Subject: "Lead, Glass and Poppy" by Kristin Prevallet

Now available from primitive publications -- "Lead, Glass and Poppy," by Kristin Prevallet, a riveting work incorporating past and present news stories into a "millennial convergence poem."

About this chapbook, Mark Wallace writes: "Kristin Prevallet's work presents a distinctly modern witchery, a series of spells and counterspells designed to drive us from complacency with a paradoxically generous black magic. In her new chapbook, 'Lead, Glass and Poppy,' Kristin details exactly what happens when human beings take off blithely for the sun; they experience intense heat, destructive fallout, and the debris of deluded dreams. What surprise, then, that they find themselves once more in the chaotic history of misunderstood desires for transcendence."
