Please join us for a poetry reading and book signing with Devin Kelly. Kelly's This Cup of Absence will be released this March.
Devin Kelly’s poems in This Cup of Absence revel in a contemporary romanticism in which blunt talk mingles with intimate whispers. He has delved into the existential emptiness where “we are all/the short fuse of our burning” and emerged on the side of childhood innocence and a love for the word and the world. Frank in their portrayals of intimacy and domestic and desert landscapes, Melissa Smyth’s photographs provide the perfect complement.
