VAGABOND is proud to announce the launch of The Vulnerability of Silence, by Anmarie Soucie.
Please see to purchase.

“The geography of Anmarie Soucie's excellently sensitive book of poems contains the names of virtually every drug used by this monstrously decadent system to murder young people, but her lyrical and narrative sophistication defies and ultimately triumphs over the rotten diseases of capitalism.”

~ Jack Hirschmann, emeritus Poet Laureate of San Francisco

"A piercing collection forged in remarkably stark compassion."

~ Amiel Courtin-Wilson, poet and filmmaker, Flood Projects

 “Whether exploring the streets of New York or the wild suburbs of Nebraska, Soucie’s poems leap from the page to reveal with startling intimacy moments of hope and heartbreak, beauty and loss. Combining dark humor, wit and deft emotion, they are a lyrical guide to the human comedy in the 21st century.”

~ Tony Perrottet, author of Off the Deep End, and The Sinner’s Grand Tour

"In a world chock full of 'me too's' and 'no more's', we need poets like Anmarie Soucie. Her collection -- The Vulnerability of Silence -- is brimming with the anger and mercurial mood that comes from these experiences, yet not without grace, depth, and wonderful insight. Her poems are an introspective reckoning that deals with trauma, relationships, and society, laid down on the page for us to witness, and even, perhaps, to connect with."

~ Alisson M. Wood, founder of Pigeon Pages

VAGABOND announces the launch of:

Here are the unabridged documents of what has gone down in St. Louis and the region at large – that is, bullets, long-time ago massacres, military tanks, the “brutal games” set into motion on a peoples of color, of those with few resources, a city, a state, a region cut into painful slices – you and me, by the way. Listen here.  Reflect on these poets, activists, philosophers, artists, community builders.  Unchecked power can only be challenged by heart-soul illuminations – for the people. Now open this book. You’ll find song too – “voice-lifted and wakeful rhymes,” yes, the “hope for peace” cannot be erased.  Give thanks to the ongoing work of East St. Louis Laureate Eugene B. Redmond and these brave hard-workin’ poets carving poetry news that few cover on the pages of the nation.  You got to love it.  I do.

–  Juan Felipe Herrera, Poet Laureate of the United States
