black movie, a chapbook of new poetry by The Offing Micro editor Danez Smith, is now available from Button Poetry!
Smith’s second chapbook, black movie follows his widely heralded full-length work, [insert] boy (Yes Yes Books, 2014). Patricia Smith regards Smith as “the crown prince of innovation and ferocity,” and his work “forte unleashed, an illicit glimpse of poetry’s yet-to-be-turned page, a reason to stomp and romp in your church shoes.”
The poetry world echoes this enthusiasm and praise: Smith is a winner of the Poetry Foundation’s 2014 Ruth Lilly/Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Fellowship, two-time Rustbelt Regional Champion, and placed second at the Individual World Poetry Slam. This summer, [insert] boy was awarded the Lambda Literary prize for poetry.
You can order Smith’s powerful new chapbook, black movie, directly from Button Poetry.
