Marking the end of The Lune's thirty-title chapbook series and 2017 quarterly, Autumn is a commencement ceremony led by six contemporary voices: Sherry Luo, Nicholas Fuenzalida, Jaime Robles, Eleni Padden, Genelle Chaconas, and Curtis Romero. The resulting sextet of lyric and prose poetry leads us through civilized hells and congenital halls, charting the drama of the human body through personal and perceptual displacements.
Luo's Imperative of the Night scintillates, nuclear and osmotic; Fuenzalida's The Slightest Bearing billows with the quiet jazz of memory, careful drawn breath; Robles's Memory Palace walks the prism of home on bird-light feet; Padden's All the Parts of the Animal dons oil-slick war paint for the party at the end of the world; Chaconas's Yet Wave refracts a person through Barnesian Nightwood fever dream and moral dyslexia; and Romero's Harvest spins the vinyl of analog humanity, unseduced by waxing mechanisms of concealment.
