The Service Porch

Fred Moten
Letter Machine Editions
Artists' Books
134 pgs

The third and final volume of Fred Moten’s poetic trilogy (including The Feel Trio and The Little Edges), The Service Porch is expansive meditation on black life, love, violence, and the adventure of making art. Moten returns here to reinvent some of his earliest poetic visions and strikes up a conversation with many of the most brilliant African American visual artists through a series of epistolary and ekphrastic poems. By turns mournful, tender, ferocious, and heart-breakingly honest, The Service Porch is an open letter, a play list, and a hive of prayer and joy.

Softcover, perfect-bound, b&w.
