2018 1/2K Winner

“Other Fountains” by Brian Sneeden

“Other Fountains” gives us the dark and light of humanity in a language that holds new words for hunger and lust and animal and childhood. It captures a mysticism, a wonder, and something that at first glance might be seen as disregard for another life, but instead it’s the opposite. It’s praise; a hymn sung in the voice of a bull.” — Bryan Borland and Seth Pennington, Sibling Rivalry Press
