Vacant Quarter

What Mound Have Been  //  Some Poems, 2003-2013

2014     60p     5.5 x 8.5

A petite, personal history of the curious earthworks of North St. Louis, the text explores the mysterious origins and unexpected transformations of the city’s monumental earthen mounds. From the burial grounds of Native Americans to the platforms of early St. Louis colonialists for their self-aggrandizing fountains; from a hideout for delinquent youths to modern industrial usage and its toxic remnants, Vacant Quarter strikes a balance between humor and history, poetry and prose.
