Gravity & Spectacle (cover art for new book)

Finally have an official cover for the next book, which is a conspiracy between my poems and Jia Oak Baker photographs where I am wearing a mask that was created by artist JJ Horner 🌵🤘

"Jia Oak Baker's stunning photographs of Flesh Cactus, a discarded punk-rock-skateboard-video-prop-mask, and Shawnte Orion's sardonic, pop culture-infused poetry make the strange world of Gravity and Spectacle. It is a slanted ode to Phoenix and its surrounding deserts, both gorgeous and absurd, stoic and wry, gravitational and spectacular, a "love letter to the fireplace" of a hometown seen through the lens and the pens of two of its inhabitants."

We had to use expensive glossy paper for these epic photos, but it can be preordered @tolsunbooks for $20

Sidenote: that gorgeous Luster Kaboom mural on the cover has now been painted over r.i.p.
