Inspired by the eighth-century poet, Li Po, Alex Stolis compares him to the “beat generation” of the 1950s. Throughout the poems Stolis imagines the experiences Li Po would have had in a road trip-style journey across America.
Alex Stolis lives and works in Minneapolis, MN. His sixth chapbook, On the Run with Dick & Jane, was recently released by Pudding House Publications. He has been the recipient of five Pushcart Nominations.
Newton’s First Law of Motion

the neon blanket
of Bourbon Street–
collapse with you
into a crease in the horizon.
I love this city on sullen nights,
spent with you. excerpt by Alex Stolis
