I'm grateful and ecstatic to share that my 2nd book, Ablation, will be published by 11:11 Press. Its release date is November 1st, 2023. PRE-ORDER THE BOOK HERE. 

My deep + sincere thanks to Andrew and Megan Wilt at 11:11, to Mike Corrao for designing the book's cover + innards, and to the many friends who read the work and offered their thoughts and time as the book took shape. Stay tuned for more info as the book's release date approaches. In the meantime, glory in the cover's velvety static. Here's the book synopsis:

Ablation is an elegy to Stegeman LeMay's mom, who died in 2020, and, simultaneously, a love letter to Stegeman LeMay's young daughter. The book was written in the liminal spaces opened by birth, death, and trauma. It contains poems, hybrid text, images as windows and thread as a form of healing. The book’s materials coalesce and surface, waves washing along the thresholds of control and chaos, form and formlessness. These thresholds become points of divergence, where what’s essential is carried forward, where all else is transformed and unshored.
