Across the Vapour Gulf

Poetry by Will Alexander

In Will Alexander’s work, “Every poem reads like a subversive, alchemical wonder. He is truly a singular voice” (Jackson Poetry Prize citation). Inspired by Cioran’s aphorisms and composed over the span of thirty years, Across the Vapour Gulf opens with a note by the poet: “Reading Cioran opened an unexpected neural pathway, opening the way for the composition of the compilation at hand. Each entry was instantaneous. They welled up and appeared with such astonishing alacrity, that they seemed to compose themselves practically fully formed.”

Contemporary African American poet

Hands down one of the most amazing writers writing today.

—Christopher Higgs, Big Other

[Will Alexander’s] oracular poetry, marked by its lexical density, its engagement with science, mythology, and technology, always surprises.
