THRONE OUT: AN ATTEMPT TO DEPOSE PROSE

Throne Out is a poetry chapbook, which collects some of my favorite "throwaways".

The now sold-out book contained 56 unedited, stream-of-consciousness doggerels filled with emotional wordplay, and indifferent pleasantries. It was released in a limited quantity of hand-numbered copies, and entirely produced to recreate the spirit of the original "throwaways project". Each came with 55 printed poems, and one unique, handwritten throwaway written especially for that particular copy.

 

 

THE LEAST SILENT OF MEN

My book, The Least Silent of Men, is completely sold out. It is a chapbook on the subject of silence, and a detail of experiences during a 30-day vow of silence, which is no longer publicly available.

Limited to 10 hardcover copies (with DVDr), and 333 hand-numbered trade paperbacks.

The cover is a play on Barbara Kruger’s “Your Comfort Is My Silence”, redesigned by the author.
