We at Compline are fairly ecstatic to announce our first publication: CJ Martin’s Two Books. Compiling Martin’s first two poetry collections in one volume, Two Books is the perfect introduction to this super visceral, lyric-assemblage poetry. We are honored to debut this work, and we’re certain you’ll be floored by this collection!
To prove it, take a look at the poem CITY here.
And while you’re at it, here are some resources to help familiarize yourself with Martin’s project:
