GLINTS arrives

GLINTS is hot off the press. The 13th in our WinteRed chaplet series, GLINTS is a fantastic long poem in fragments by Twin Cities performance artist and poet, Gabrielle Civil. Here's an excerpt:


at the edge of the firewall

dark skin exaggerated like a church

stacks of books.
the scruff of deer.

fucked up
around the lake

It is Already Morning.

your brain feels and feels

like gold lining

on a rooftop

turned inside out.



GABRIELLE CIVIL is a black woman poet, scholar, conceptual and performance artist originally from Detroit, MI. She received her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from New York University and currently teaches literature and writing at the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, MN. The goal of her work is to open up space.

Order GLINTS by sending $1.39 to WinteRed Press, 2306 27th Avenue South, Mpls. MN 55406
