where i come from the fish have souls

my new poetry collection where i come from the fish have souls was published by Spuyten Duyvil!


The poems in lisa panepinto’s where i come from the fish have souls tie resonate with ancient spirits as well as contemporary voices of the poor, the Indigenous peoples, the disenfranchised youth, the forgotten elderly, and those who have found moments of love despite all the madness. These profound, stunning, tightly-wrought poems weave subjects of environment, racism, nature, and music into a greater whole of shattering art that echoes long after reading. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” -Kat Georges, author, Our Lady of the Hunger and Three Somebodies: Plays About Notorious Dissidents


Copies are available from the fabulous small press Spuyten Duyvil or indie bookstores Blue Hill Books and Gulf of Maine Books.
