Island is a chapbook accompaniment to A Flag of No Nation. This edition includes three pieces of the larger book: Island, Afterword, and an excerpt from the essay “On the Hamsa Flag.” Illustrations by Samuel Bennett. Island is a narrative poem about an act of collective blindness that forms an industrious yet precarious nation. The sequence plays with the epic, the creation myth, the concrete poem & a range of other forms that press against each other as a world is built out of the white space of the page.
