Marcus McCann: from Shut Up Slow Down Let Go Breathe

SEX AT THIRTY-ONE Here’s hunger’s sweet spot, extra dough, and a summary of my competencies, is what I thought the year would be. Under its canopy, I vowed to string enough fairy lights end to end to make waver the dominant view. That and get off. It was overly lofty. Bulbs burst not from weakness...
Susan Briante: from The Market Wonders

Susan Briante: from The Market Wonders

Towards a Poetics of the Dow (excerpt) Everyday has a number attached to it. Great additions, subtractions. This is not just an aesthetic problem (see Ashbery). There is a “natural impulse toward the boundedness of closure.” The bell rings, trading stops. But the world is “unfinished” (Hejinian). Both the rivers and their banks are moving....

Catriona Wright: from Table Manners

Catriona Wright: from Table Manners

ORIGIN STORY Some of it was probably cozy and nice. Close to the fire, silly drunk on sweet fermented plums. Some of it was urgent. One last romp before the man strapped on his sandals and dragged his sword into a bloody field. And some quiet, unbuttoning all those pearl buttons from nape to feet,...
Poem of the Week: Trish Salah

Poem of the Week: Trish Salah

What a vision is. Of course it is not all to do with pleasure, let alone the composition of your genitals, Fluids forming a confluence of energy and sleep, predator joy, and submissive heat. Of course there is no simple logic to a boy in a man's lap, a slave gazing with devoted eyes, or...

Flannery O’Connor reads A Good Man is Hard to Find

I wrote about this story, indirectly, a while back. Here's an excerpt: A new story by Alice Munro in the current New Yorker had the Hound up part of the night, and just when she had begun to think that Munro couldn't zing her anymore. The twist in plot took her completely by surprise. Cheeky,...

Thanks & So Long

Thanks & So Long

These last few months have been difficult, knowing that Lemon Hound would be ending, not quite believing it. I've been torn between wanting--as has been my feeling from the beginning--to save this as a space for women and diverse voices--and wanting my life back; between knowing that we need to provide more opportunities for writers...
Bhanu Kapil: from Ban En Banlieue

Bhanu Kapil: from Ban En Banlieue

Where is the body in the poem? This is a question I have been asking a lot lately, and will continue to ask as I embark on a collection of essays about poetry. This is not a question the reader will have to ask of Bhanu Kapil's work though. The body is right there, in...
Northern British Columbia: Six Poets

Northern British Columbia: Six Poets

I sought these poets knowing I was catching only a slice of northern BC’s writers, in order to offer a glimpse into some of what’s going on out here. This doesn’t represent a renaissance – there have been poets toiling in these eskers and valleys for ages – but it’s proof of a region’s literature...

Gentle, Juliana Spahr

Nature, what is nature? What is eco? What is eco-poetics? What is nature-eco-poetics? How does feminism fit into nature eco poetics? What would a Vendana Shiva/Donna Haraway hybrid look like? Tim Lilburn and Juliana Spahr? I can’t help but wonder what, how, nature, or what we think of nature differs east, west, developed, undeveloped, with...
