Daniel Rounds’ second volume of poetry is a rumination of what it is be a self and a body and the simultaneity of desire. Accompanied by full-color plates by photographer Jesse Vasquez, Rounds work continues to ruminate on language as inscription and definition but also as sound. Here Rounds tilts toward the physical, the coupling of one body with another, the fact of physicality as self-definition.
Daniel Rounds’ poetry has been featured in Aufgabe, 3rd Bed, Goodfoot, XConnect, Fish Drum magazine, and American River Review. His first book of poetry, SOME DISTANT LATERAL PRESENT, was released by Ad Lumen Press in 2014 and EROS ZERO was published by Ad Lumen Press in 2017. He lives and works in Sacramento.
Jesse Vasquez is a photographer, artist, and curator from Sacramento. His work is largely focused on the phenomenon of having a human body and its connection to human consciousness.
