elsewhere's 2019 chapbook contest winner: Ori Fienberg, selected by prose poet Zach Schomburg

twenty-one poems that interrogate the hair industry, trains of thought, bees, and lonely mechanical bulls.

excerpt from “Sidekicks”: “While the bar is closed the mechanical bull awakens as a real bull. He is not the only one. They escape from wood and tarpaper watering holes across the country, trying to find the wide open land.”
