Chapbook: Capital City at Midnight: Poems by Christopher Nelson

"There’s something about this voice that makes it impossible for me to put these poems down. It would be easy to say these are narrative poems but that’s too simple and does them a disservice. These are poems that speak into you, they are worlds. Capital City at Midnight is a testament not merely to a poet whose poems I want to see more of but of a poet whose line I want to see more of. There are new structures being dreamt of here no matter how traditional the poems look on the page. This is a blueprint for something remarkable that’s on its way.” — Gabrielle Calvocoressi, 2014 poetry judge
