Claremont, CA – April 02, 2022 – Pelekinesis is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Diminuendo, new poetry from Katrinka Moore, available July 1, 2022 worldwide.

From the entangled cosmos to our present quickening calamity, the central concern of Diminuendo is the making and unmaking of the world. The poems follow celebration —

What keeps us    earth      life

handful of sweet notes     hidden


— with lament —


we believe it was all made

for us     misunderstand

the nature of give and take.

            We live in uncertainty, “between earth and sky     ever- / cycling despair and hope.” Despite — or because of — this foreboding, Moore seeks to view the natural world in and of itself, beyond its relationship to humans. This work conceives a realm in which distinctions between animate and inanimate diminish and the boundary between physical and spiritual dissolves.

Diminuendo by Katrinka Moore will be available through Small Press Distribution, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, Gardners, directly from the publisher's website, and in fine local bookstores worldwide.
