a boy named jane is a chapbook of narrative poetry that follows the coming-of-age of an adolescent as he navigates crisis. In these poems, M. Wright’s musings on purpose, death, love, the existential, and the body oscillate from fear to excitement to contentedness to find a kind of solace in the unknowable.

“I am glad that M. Wright has written a chapbook that focuses heavily on cows and organic material. I used to live beside a cow pasture. Whenever I would pass beside it and see cows walking around, eating, etc., I would always think to myself that the cows seemed mysterious and beautiful. The investigations of life, death, process, and organism contained in Wright’s chapbook are earnest and emotional. This is my favorite passage from a boy named jane: ‘in my dream / you were a cow / and you were me.’”
Luis Neer, author of Extinction
