We attended a local poetry reading at the Miami Township Public Library this spring, where Phoebe Reeves read some poems from a book-length manuscript she was working on called “The Gardener & the Garden.” The poems stayed with us, and later, when asked if she might consider publishing a chapbook-length version of her project, Phoebe enthusiastically agreed. We are happy to present The Gardener & the Garden, Number 4 in Volume Four of the Seven Kitchens Press Editor’s Series, with original artwork by Ursula Murray Husted. Get your copy here!
