UnCollected Press is delighted to announce the publication of a chapbook of poetry by Sophia Falco.
In this semi-autobiographical compilation, Sophia Falco not only offers a bold new poetic voice, but also a glimpse into a stigmatized consciousness. On a journey to explore her own experiences with bipolar disorder, she takes us into the black eye of The Immortal Sunflower, transfixing us with its gaze, demanding that we dive through the dark and into a world beyond, where the natural world collides and intersects with her internal thought processes.
Falco shares with us her mind’s inner landscape, one that is simultaneously unfamiliar and intimately resonant, one uniquely her own, and one that we share through her powerful language of metaphor—a language with the ability to immerse us and change us, letting us transcend stigma and find a deeper understanding, a “freedoming.”

In an age where artistic expression is increasingly, and perhaps necessarily, politicized, Walton delivers a powerful reminder of the universality and timelessness of poetry. His work is a synthesis of musings on past and present, public and private as he moves seamlessly from the big issues – life, death, religion, power – to everyday, intimate details – how a cockroach moves, the making of milk, the ache of missing a lover – with the lightest of touches. A stranger’s small and spontaneous gesture in Arles, for instance, let us know that ‘there is no such thing as nation’. Walton’s poetry is a similarly unifying force, crossing boundaries of age, gender, race and culture.
