the book

cover art by Colleen Hammond


Sky Journal is a book of poems about transformation;
a decade of scopes & firmament & visceral origami


Hassen Saker is at the eye of the storm for a new generation, lyric & personal & analytic & tough, committed to no medium but the truth. This is a book of wands.
~Ron Silliman

…unlike the Romantic, who both surveys and defines the sublime from his own icy pinnacle, Saker carefully dismantles sublimity’s power over language.
~Jean Day

Re-encounter, immerse, savor and …. read them, yes, but I suggest u do something with these fierce beautiful poems, too.
~Natalie Jeremijenko
