ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kore Press proudly presents *The Monarchs: A 60-Poem Sequence on audio*, read by author Alison Hawthorne Deming. A sustained meditation on science, the body, relationship and the intelligence of the monarch migration.

(excerpt)

". . . Why do we struggle to live

when the wild creatures simply do their living?
One summer I drove into this city
after an acid trip, left one friend off and
continued with another who'd gone

benignly psychotic---twelve-foot angels
standing behind him while his body turned
to sawdust. What was guiding us then

but the desire to find a deeper way?"

Alison Deming is the author of six books, including Science and Other Poems, The Monarchs: A Poem Sequence; a collection of essays, Temporary Homelands; and Girls in the Jungle: What Does It Take for a Woman to Survive as an Artist (chapbook/poster from Kore Press). She has edited Poetry of the American West: A Columbia Anthology. Among other awards, she has received a Wallace Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University, two NEA Fellowships, a Pushcart Prize and a fellowship from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown.

She is an Associate Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Arizona as well as the former director of the UA Poetry Center.
