Into the Rumored Spring

Cover of Into the Rumored Spring

Into the Rumored Spring, from Ravenna Press.

A few words about Into the Rumored Spring:

It is the aloneness that draws that invisible line between us all that none of us can cross. Yet somehow, through her poetry, Stangeland manages to prick holes in that delineation. She communicates understanding, watchfulness, honor.
—Zinta Astairs, The Smoking Poet

…in addition to their fine craftsmanship, they are filled with moments of unexpected beauty and flashes of unsentimental insight.
—Janelle Elyse Kihlstrom, Melusine

A Piece of Work


Have you ever wished that the programs on your computer would just work? Have you ever felt like throwing your laptop out the window or beating your head against the wall and wondered why, why? These prose poems delve into the dark and surreal side of software—especially when it’s still being figured out and built.

For more information about what inspired these poems, see With Wolves and Vodka.
