no sat nav … no map … no regrets
the second edition of the cherita

We, the editors, of the cherita : your storybook journal, are pleased to announce the arrival of our July edition: no sat-nav … no map … no regrets

Larry Kimmel has selected 76 new and original cherita by 32 poets from the UK, USA, India, Australia, Ireland, Canada and West Africa.

As in the inaugural June edition there are images to enliven the kindle pages, though I have not attempted the epic one image per cherita format of ai li’s flagship edition. Just a pinch of spice, here and there.

I hope you will delight in the storytelling within as much as I did. 


Here is an example from the book :-


taking two masks

to the ball
under one

i’m willing
to do


ai li


The collection has been designed to showcase individual cherita, but is also designed to be read as a single long poem, which can be thought of as a fragmented stream of consciousness, one plucked from our common understanding, our shared awareness.

To purchase a print copy and/or a Kindle book, please click on the cover below
N.B. There are no images in the print version of the cherita.


Please be aware that from 31 October 2019, KDP will be retiring their Kindle Matchbook program.
