This is the first poetry offering in our Signature Series, released as a hand-crafted print chapbook, green edition chapbook, and e-book. In this collection, Jessie Carty weaves nineteen narrative poems together to tell the story of a quirky married couple. Atom copes with stress by thinking about the Periodic Table of Elements. Zoe has a penchant for dress-gloves. And while they are often out of sync with each other, they always work in unison to keep Atom’s secret.


Jessie Carty’s poems and non-fiction have appeared in publications such as The Main Street Rag, Iodine Poetry Journal and The Northville Review. Her first chapbook At the A & P Meridiem was released by Pudding House Publications in 2009. Jessie has been a finalist in several poetry and chapbook contests. Her work has also been twice nominated for the Best of the Net Award. Her first full length collection Paper House (Folded Word) won the Poetry Award in the Northern California Publishers and Authors 2011 Book Awards. Jessie teaches Creative Writing at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
