Poetry, chapbook, 40 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
One day my sister and I watched as her daughter ran in circles around the kitchen isle. My sister closed her eyes and took a breath and said, "I hope I never forget the sound of those little feet." This manuscript sounds the pitter-patter of those little feet, that we might remember what is at stake: in romance, in the natural world, in commerce.
Little Feet is a wake-up call for the "motherly instinct." It oscillates between prose and poetry, between observation and expression- like a conversation. The poems are conscious voices; they are unearthed from beneath the stories the characters don't realize they are telling themselves.
Chase Preston-White lives in Athens, Ga, with his husband and puppy. You'll find him practicing massage during the work week and by Sandy Creek when the day is free. This collection is his first.
