Home » Third Man Books' Joshua Marie Wilkinson "Afterparty"

Josh says of Afterparty: "I wrote this poem as a result of falling in love with Abelardo Morell's photographs, and after being invited by Amber Tamblyn & Mindy Nettifee to read at the Getty in Los Angeles for a celebration of Morell's work. I think it's about desire, frustration, not getting it, getting away with it, and whatever's after love, because of love."
