Infused with ideas of world-making and images of space-light, fishing birds, lost bees and smashed TVs, this new poetry by Michelle Elrick is both deep-thought and light-hearted. A meditation on perception, and on finding stillness and connection in a fast-paced world, Photon Touch asks that you "hold out your hand" and let the world "rub into." It is at once a dark, existential reckoning with modern distraction and social disconnection and a hopeful, awe-inspiring call to live fully, to "wake up / wake up / wake up /" because "the mountains are all different."

"Photon Touch illuminates the magic to be found in opening yourself up to the world." --The Coast.
