The Eights by Dan Chelotti

Winner of the 2006 PSA Chapbook Fellowship

The Eights by Dan Chelotti, selected and introduced by Yusef Komunyakaa.

Edition: 500 copies of the winning books were printed by the Prolific Group and designed by Gabriele Wilson.


one finds oneself in dialogue with the speaker in The Eights , this voice at the center of our own being. We are still standing on our own two feet. We aren’t jarred. Rather, we have been carefully guided into an extended reality through the control embedded in each poem.

—Yusef Komunyakaa
