Phill Provance's The Day the Sun Rolled Out of the Sky


CGP 24: The Day the Sun Rolled Out of the Sky
by Phill Provance  (28 pp. Saddle-Stitched. B&w illus. by Christopher Schmidt) $7 ppd.

From the Cy Gist Press website:
In his debut collection, Andalucian dog Phill Provance weds humor and pathos. The speaker of The Day the Sun Rolled Out of the Sky is not so much an anti-hero as a secret identity viewed with precision and candor. Provance makes the quotidian magical employing only the most mundane of objects; no false bottom in his top hat and his rabbit speaks in tongues.

You can order a copy of the chapbook and read a sample poem "Where I Draw the Line" here. Also included in the chapbook are two much-loved poems featured in the current issue of Cha: "St. Petersberg Has Many Churches" and "What I Said to Her Was Not a Lie".
Phill Provance's poems were published in issue #12 of Cha. His poem "St. Petersberg Has Many Churches" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize 2010 and discussed here.
