DOOMDUET (Special Edition) Edie Roberts and Chelsea Tadeyeske: Spring 2020
Authors and Editors: Edie Roberts and Chelsea Tadeyeske
Publisher: Pitymilk Press (2020)
DOOMDUET, a special edition of pitymilk’s recurring series, brings you poems by editors and DUETDUET Vol 1. alumni Chelsea Tadeyeske and Edie Roberts. Each piece titled ‘i’m dealing with a fucking global crisis’ (words spoken by Sen. Bernie Sanders) encapsulates the drowning spirit of the now in an endless, slick cascade of political, environmental, and social collapse. Written in their entirety the first week of COVID-19 quarantine, these poems scratch, howl, moan, and scream for a more livable future while ruminating in trashy water, disposable masks, aching distance, and $9/hr hazard pay. Special edition of a continuing series.
