Karen Greenbaum-Maya’s new book on Bamboo Dart Press is out August 8th. Trailer premieres today.

The Beautiful Leaves by Karen Greenbaum-Maya consists of poems about the diagnosis, illness, and death of the author’s beloved husband, and her grief. In the short film above, Karen reads a passage that is one part robocall and one part remains, with both halves fused together for a stunning coda. The book is available for pre-order now and out everywhere on August 8th.
