out of a wilderness of tangled cables, chapbook

The poems of out of a wilderness of tangled cables are experimental poems, political poems, and, above all, they are love poems. These poems form a cry from within the rotting walls of a building patrolled by racist landlords for a future without hierarchies, where none of us are marginalized or left in isolation. The language of these restless, splintered near-sonnets weaves together recurring natural scenes, fragments of the Spanish I once spoke at home, ghosts of the love and life-saving conversations I've shared with trans women, echoes of the ever-present surveillance (the digital, the internalized, the cisgender) that haunts our every move, and a bloody, vengeful prayer for the end of all that profits from our suffering. You can read drafts of the poems here and here.

Each purchase includes a print copy of the 32 page chapbook and a PDF version of out of a wilderness. The minimum price for a purchase is $5 USD, but feel free to pay more to further support my future work.

The shipping cost is $2 more at check out. Please note, I'm not shipping internationally, so you won't be able to place an order for the chapbook from outside the United States. There is a free PDF of out of the wilderness posted over at my Patreon page here for anyone who can't afford a print copy or is unable to order one from outside the US.

I'll also be sharing a downloadable mp3 of me reading the full chapbook as soon as I get a chance to record it, so follow me on twitter (@jamieberrout) or Patreon for more updates on that.
