The Bodies, a poetry volume by Christopher Sindt

Chris Sindt's latest volume of poems, The Bodies, has just been published by Parlor Press’s poetry series, Free Verse Editions. The publisher notes, "the poems in The Bodies reveal an eco-poetics that draws from the imagery and history of the west coast of the United States, studying the way language engages with the nonhuman and the wild.
