Now Available: what Desire makes of us by Cati Porter PDF Print E-mail

Ahadada Books is pleased to announce the publication of what Desire makes of us by Cati Porter, an electronic chapbook with illustrations by Amy Payne.

The series of poems that comprises what Desire makes of us was conceived of during April of 2009 in celebration of National Poetry Month (NaPoWriMo) in response to poem-a-day prompts provided by Robert Brewer on his Writers Digest/Poetic Asides Blog. An anthropomorphic personification of one of life’s basest instincts, Desire haunts our narrator, culminating in a surrealistic exploration of what it could mean to be literally consumed by Desire.

A southern California native, Cati Porter is the author of four poetry collections: Seven Floors Up (Mayapple Press), small fruit songs: prose poems (Pudding House Publications), (al)most delicious (Dancing Girl Press), and what Desire makes of us. She is founder and editor of Poemeleon: A Journal of Poetry. To learn more about her work work visit her website at
