The “Potcake Chapbook” series is named for the dogs of the Bahamas and the Caribbean – strays that live off the burnt scrapings of cooking pots. The poems in the series are a mixed bunch – but the potcake of our logo wears a bow tie to show that he and all the poems are formal. These poems are memorable in part because they rhyme and scan, as all truly memorable poetry does. We subscribe to the use of form, no matter how formless the times in which we live.

The branch and the leaves – Giovanni Cerbiatto

Giovanni Cerbiatto is a peasant and folklorist who lives in Umbria, Italy. The world, insofar as it worlds, gathers everything, each to the other, and lets everything return to itself in its own resting in the selfsame. This is his second collection of poems translated into English.

Cerbiatto’s first poetry collection Dieci poesi con otto linee (Ten poems with eight lines) was recently reviewed by Helena Nelson at Sphinx who described it as  “A simple line, a fluid development” and ” Stylish”. Full Review HERE
