I hadn’t intended to publish Dead Poem Office in 2007 at all. The chapbook’s title was a tongue-in-cheek reference to REM’s Dead Letter Office (1987), an album of ‘b-sides compiled’. The idea was to collect together a chapbook’s worth of poems that had been published previously in journals, but that had not made the cut for We Will Disappear. The first edition appeared on Scribd in 2007, and in 2012 I published an expanded version. Take a look for yourself.
