I Carved Your Name, by Christopher Shipman

Imaginary Friend Press is happy to release I Carved Your Name, by Christopher Shipman! This chapbook includes a poetic conversation between Shipman and Bhanu Kapil as well as 21 pages of Shipman's fantastic poetry. These poems trace the trajectory of a relationship interweaving the lyric with the fabulist.

An excerpt from the poem "We Met When She Moved to Milwaukee":
"'Here she is,' I say to the bartender. She doesn't speak. Her eyes are fresh graves. There is the turned earth, the melted snow. Rain hardens in her hair. Her back drips wet as snowmen stumble from her spine.

I grab the napkins, spotted with bourbon like dirt under melting snow. They have folded in places I never meant them to. It is so dark I step into a sky frozen in puddle. The night is a cold hand resting on my shoulder."
