City of Tomorrow  || Chad Reynolds 

"I like to imagine these poems being read on the fresh ruins of a city that used to be a city that, too, was once a city before. One line flakes away into the dust congress of the next; another explodes like a hidden sex organ. In two hundred years maybe these poems will be rediscovered underneath the burnt out chassis of a party bus and people will be envious of you for having been the first to expound on the truths of this collection. City of Tomorrow sidearm-swipes the bookshelf of your mind clean only to build a new shelf and destroy that one, too.”

7” x 4.25” chapbook printed in an edition of 120 hand numbered copies on high quality text weight paper and letterpressed on 110lb flour white lettra paper.

Republished in 2013 as part of the Greying Ghost Archive Series (#1)
Note on the archived edition:”News of the Haircut helped blast Greying Ghost from the womb with both fists clenched. There was no way I could start the archive series with anything other than the poems of Peter Berghoef. Reading over these poems once again I remember the salad days. I remember the excitement of that first chapbook, the uncharted territory that would unfurl itself these six years hence. I am excited once again.”
From 2007: ”The debut chapbook from Peter Berghoef. News of the Haircut appears out of nowhere, asks you sit at its table, pours you a glass of cold water, and recounts the illustrious events of its life. This sly half-smile from Holland, Michigan is just a stepping stone. Some of the best poems i’ve read in a good long while. You will be hearing from him again and again for years to come.”

Imaginary Portraits by Joshua Ware

"Imaginary Portraits is a collection of poems to be read late at night, at a kitchen table, long after the party had disbanded. Joshua Ware’s gift of possessing grand ideas and visions, through his singular and unrivaled voice, in these short vignettes, is nothing short of brilliant. He is destined for greater things than a Greying Ghost chapbook but we welcome him to the fraternity regardless, with our jaws on the floor.”

Best Practices by Justin Marks

"Best Practices is the poetic equivalent to Funkadelic saying “Free your mind, and your ass will follow.” If you’ve ever read a book and felt inspired enough to create a bit of art, well whoop-de-damn-do. This book will inspire you move mountains with words, man! You’ll sail on seas of crisp sentences. Your manuscript may never see the light of day but in the future everyone will wish it had. Let Justin Marks be your guru, your sage. Let his senses be slapped into you.”
