Ugly Duckling Presse [Brooklyn, NY], a non profit publisher of poetry, translation, performance texts, investigative forms, lost works, and books by artists is publishing Orange by Christine Herzer.


Orange is concerned with space-making. Orange contains declarations (“Poets are containers. Containers deserve respect”) and language-situations, including the hire of a professional lover to address money issues. Reading Orange might impact the way you experience words such as "fridge", "fear", "toast", and "handwash". If  i had a texture it would be soft. If you believe that feelings smell, Orange might be for you. Sometimes a color can hold a space that is otherwise shadowed/obscured/unknowable.
