Hello All,

My book just came out: Commuter from Instance Press. You should be able to order it in a few days. Hope you enjoy it!

Here's a brief write up:

Commuter attempts to encourage response by negotiating notions of the self. How is the self endlessly reconstituted
through self-reflection, trauma, relationship, and love? Between author and reader/audience, amid horrific
contemporary events, Belflower reconceives poetry as a secondary witness. Employing poetry to shape a new mode
of responsibility, Commuter contends with atrocity. Yet this response is not based on a logic of exclusion or hostile
conflict; rather, this powerful first book models the courage of the witness as a compelling poetic subjectivity.
