JoJo the Dogface Boy is a chapbook that features poems from Joseph Mains' full-length title BO$$Y, forthcoming from Gramma in 2018. Printed with Risograph, in collaboration with Cold Cube Press. Published in an edition of 75, saddle stitched. 9.25 x 6.75 inches. 13pp.
BO$$Y interrogates and critiques mass culture's influence on the concept of the individual through the lenses of poetic form, identity and epistomologies of technocapitalism. Rejecting claims to linguistic ownership as an inherently colonial lie perpetuated by the apologists of private languages in the academy and beyond, BO$$Y attempts to dismantle the shackles of history, power, and authority. By any means necessary.
Joseph Mains is from the Sonora desert. He is the author of numerous chapbooks including Poum Poum Tralala (Poor Claudia 2010), and the forthcoming full length collection, BO$$Y. He lives in Portland, OR.
