Caitlin Elizabeth Thomson contributed her long poem “Incident Reports: The Vanishings” to Neon back in November 2010. The poem – broken into a series of twenty-two “case files” – told of a mysterious mass vanishing incident in which a large portion of the world’s population spontaneously disappeared.
Now, four years later, Caitlin has published her second chapbook, which includes “Incident Reports: The Vanishings” along with dozens of other poems. The collection is available now from Hyacinth Girl Press. If her work in Neon is anything to judge by, it should definitely be worth a read.
