Poetry, chapbook, 36 pages, from Bottlecap Features.

Stringfoot is a collection of memories, griefs, and moments written about the before, the while, and the after. The writing is the author’s attempt to untangle harmful memories, like a string from the foot of a pigeon, into benign threads of understanding and rest.

The poems in Stringfoot were written in bookstores, on park benches, on trains and in graveyards. They were written as snow fell, as a virus pervaded the air, in the sleepy space just after a dream. They are New York poems, until they aren’t.

Victoria Provost is a New York-based writer, performer, and producer. Her plays Starry Friendship, I'm Still Here and The Frightening Door have been produced in NYC and elsewhere. By day, she works in the artistic department at Playwrights Horizons. On weekends she sells books. Stringfoot is her first poetry chapbook.
