Remember Men by Shane Allison, 2020

Remember Men is both a list poem and an epic poem. It narrates the speaker’s sexual history through quick, liturgical snapshots of acts, desires, descriptions, and, occasionally, names. There is no timeline or chronology, no sense of beginning or end. The poem creates a self-portrait of the speaker and a portrait of the world around them through these sexual and social intercourses.

This book is hand-bound with a double-pamphlet stitch using waxed denim linen thread. The text pages are laser printed on 24 lb recycled paper. The cover is laser printed on 60 lb cover stock. The cover image is from a painting by Richard Vyse. This book is made in Milwaukee in an edition of 50.
