KHASHAYAR MOHAMMADI ME, YOU, THEN SNOW (Gordon Hill Press)
"Queer punk pubs, porn, philosophy, and cinema are dissected & refracted with exquisite tenderness in the coldly brilliant fire that is Khashayar Mohammadi’s You, Me, Then Snow. From the quotidian to the cosmic, like a kestrel in a turquoise sky, Mohammadi’s poems soar in dizzying, dazzling ecstasy. Vulnerable, intimate, darkly comedic, and terrifyingly intelligent, this collection of the “borderline metaphysical” will get you wet, erect, then break your heart, leaving you desperate for more." — Roxanna Bennett, author of Unmeaningable
"Cinematic, sensuous, and deeply perceptive, Me, You, Then Snow turns assumptions of language inside out and celebrates the curiosity of the translingual. Seemingly straightforward language is made to recoil from meaning, then transgress, expand, and flourish across linguistic, geographic, and interior landscapes. Khashayar Mohammadi is an exceptional new voice, and a poet whose writing excites me." — Klara du Plessis, author of Unfurl
