We are absolutely thrilled to announce we will be publishing Niel Rosenthalis' chapbook "Placed" in December 2016. We have published Niel in a past issue of Yes, Poetry, which you can check out here. The book will be designed by our YP Designer Ted Chevalier.
Here is a poem from his forthcoming book:
The couple in green sat at the table with fries, which their hands went to, then to their mouths, then down to their laps. At times one went for it while the other waited, or both went, or neither. One touched the other’s knee. The other had arms closed together and turned her head this way and that. What they were was how they were. To that end, I watched from my box. (Around me the people sat in theirs such that they could look at or to the street, where the people passed.) Pass the salt, please. One did.
Niel Rosenthalis is in his second year in the M.F.A. program at Washington University in St. Louis, where he is a T.S. Eliot Scholarship recipient and winner of the Howard Nemerov Award in Poetry. His first chapbook “Try Me” was published by Deadly Chaps Press in 2015. His work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, a his poems have appeared in Tinge and Yes, Poetry.
