Excerpt

From "Habitat":

Here is a paper house to burn.

Here are the stones that address the pond.

Now count down

the rings at the top of the temple.

The invasive frogs are said to die upon

leaving their original habitat.

A pleading look in the eyes, sun-

shined, eclipsed by

a pupil. I want outside.

In the wrist is a bone like a boat.

I have been a long time out of water.

"Synopsis" by ,
Called ‘a truly masterful first book by Cole Swenson, Pier is the inaugural winner of the Kundiman Poetry Prize.
"Synopsis" by ,

Seeking to identify the self that straddles both spiritual and physical worlds, Janine Oshiro's multidimensional poems are borderlands—wild and uncontained—where vision and illusion become crucial to survival. Pier is a place of frenzied collision where human industry meets feral ocean, a place of arrivals, departures, and transitions. Within these unique architectures, lyric intensity abounds and our identities discover a common landscape.
