Happily // COMING SOON

from the Open Poetics series published by Litmus Press

by Lyn Hejinian

Happily… is a series of aphoristic statements interrogating “hap” or, more prosaically, one’s lot in life, one’s fortune. This notion of chance as it is expressed through its root form, as in to happen, happenstance, happenings, haphazard, hapless, happenchance, happily, and happy happiness, becomes the generator that enlivens this ontological exploration of language’s relationship to experience.


— Claudia Rankine, American Poet
