Available Now: The Sheep Stealer

The Sheep Stealer, Jenn Blair Hyacinth Girl Press is incredibly excited to kick off our 5th year of publishing with Jenn Blair's The Sheep Stealer. Blair's debut chapbook chronicles the odd and sometimes dark edges of a rural town, generations of those who pass through.

These are the stones of the day.
The offal and the refuse.
And sticks, scattered bones
the tree makes do without,
sometimes defiant,
sometimes bending.

These are the river’s feet,
all the underbellies of things.
And here is the dark
ancient song we dash our
hearts on the wheel to learn,
each keening hand and lung
a long ago whispered
long forgotten note.

- List, from The Sheep Stealer
