In Which Chapbooks Are the Balm On The Fractured Soul of The Jew Christian or Muslim

The CapGun chapbook series was founded when we came together as a magazine staff at CapGun headquarters and decided that we wanted to spend a bunch of money, make none, and publish manuscripts that mattered to the masses.

Instead, we published Will’s book, with his own cover design. It’s a lovely compendium for Father’s Day, and/or Thanksgiving. We have always been in favor of giving gifts at Thanksgiving, you can always take them back if you want to.

buy it now for $7 including S&H.

The debut of the CapGun chapbook series, in an edition of 200.

The poetry of Will Hubbard excites and arouses the most callous soul.

The Change

by Will Hubbard

Hurt you
to overpower
love—what I wanted
was something new.
I had always only—
maybe even,

maybe even
hurt you.
I had always only
to overpower.
Was something new
loved that I wanted

love? That I wanted
maybe even
was something new.
Hurt you
love? What I wanted
I had always only,

I had always only
loved. That I wanted
to overpower
maybe even
hurt you
was something new.

Was something new
I had always only
hurt you.
Loved—that I wanted.
Maybe even
to overpower.

To overpower
was something new
maybe, even I
had always only
loved. That I wanted
hurt you.

Maybe even to overpower.
Hurt you was something new.
I had always only loved what I wanted.

Will Hubbard, a regular contributor to This Recording, is a poet living in Williamsburg.
