Please join us for a poetry reading celebrating the chapbook Wi(d)th by Noah Fields. Joining Fields will be Jesse Baer. Wi(d)th is the preposition of togetherness but also a measurement of distance: the space of together while apart. This is a queer poetry chapbook that's in a committed long distance relationship. A fantasia of memory and desire and the urgency of intimacy through words: text messages and that sweet voice on the other end of the phone. "I press my body into an envelope & I’m sending / Tongues, consonants, permutable possibilities.
