new from above/ground press: Series out of Sequence, by Carrie Hunter

Series out of Sequence
Carrie Hunter


A real dog can always tell a fake bitch.

The real world is not about happy endings.

Screaming at the top of your lungs for answers and finding them.

Symbols don’t mean anything other than that which you hope that they mean.

I have the exhumation order.

A long hot shower in the good shower.

Bird with a twig in its mouth.

Dog with a stick in its mouth.

She saw us stuck at the threshold.

Dare to be normal.

Two Y chromosomes make nothing.

The question of being concerned and being chased.
