A Map of the Farm Three Miles from the End of Happy Hollow Road // Amorak Huey

Huey’s A MAP OF THE FARM THREE MILES FROM THE END OF HAPPY HOLLOW ROAD investigates place and the things that memory and reflection have made of it. Poems are titled after locations specific to a farm where the speaker played as a child. It becomes a landscape of vivid details coalescing into a map of the self, an ever deepening investigation of recollection & the things we carry with us. (Porkbelly Press, 2016) » excerpt & more
