Poetry. Co-editors of IXNAY magazine, Chris and Jenn McCreary have written a book which they have split exactly down the middle, one half housing Chris's poems and ode to "Twenty-one Suggested Readings," and the other, when flipped upside down, revealing Jenn's delightfully minimal poetry. A DOCTRINE OF SIGNATURES / THE EFFACEMENTS is the fourth title in the Philadelphia Publishing Project, which celebrates the diverse literary community of Southeastern Pennsylvania. "the water is speckled celadon. The water/ is blue-white dandelion milk.// we are compelled by these: reflection, symmetry, things/ botanical & churchly" - from "nocturne in blue & silver: cremorne lights," Jenn McCreary.

From Publishers Weekly:

A spousal relationship is reflected in a poetic codex: The Effacements by Chris McCreary is bound with Jenn McCreary's A Doctrine of Signatures in an entirely equitable arrangement, as each poet gets 55 pages. Jenn's "bile" "was thick, black nourishment feculent/ was partial & purged/ from the spleen one where melancholy/ & dried cool & sourblack/ & is a bridle to two, preserves/ them in blood/ & feeds bone." Chris's "Fizz licked from chapped lips/ while pitching down a staggered path/ of scratched glasses, smashed bone,/ broken phones" is "wishing to shift this itch,/ inching imperceptibly toward this exit"-and finishes with "21 Suggested Readings." Readers will accept the assignment only after finishing these two.
