Claremont, CA – December 15, 2017 – Pelekinesis is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Ariadne/Dark Dark Shine, new poetry from Caroline Beasley-Baker, available March 16, 2018 worldwide.

The poems in Ariadne/Dark Dark Shine are, as the starting poem says, “a lost/found/&repeat narration. The arcing-thread—a-whip/lifeline/way/the-magical-gift-given/odd-bit—discovered in an old sewing basket. (Who sews nowadays?) No enchanted sword or mirror—how much braver to pocket the spool of thread, head out, put your finger to a pulse and count. A puzzle sometimes, which simple thing reveals a boon.” The question posed, “labyrinth or circle?”.

Ariadne/Dark Dark Shine by Caroline Beasley-Baker will be available through Small Press Distribution, Baker & Taylor, Bertrams, directly from the publisher's website, and in fine local bookstores worldwide.
