Issue 12 cover artist Roger Camp is the author of three photography books including the award-winning Butterflies in Flight (Thames & Hudson, 2002) and Heat (Charta, Milano, 2008). He considers his first serious photograph to be the one he took at the age of ten when he climbed a pine tree to photograph Yosemite Falls from a different point of view.
“Time is a conversation that
continues to move whether or
not you are paying attention.”
“And I loved the way my voice sounded, so rich and full, when it came out.”

COG is honored to present an animated adaptation of Megan Merchant's Lullaby,
selected by 2017 U.S. Poet Laureate as winner of the 2016-17 COG Page to Screen Awards.
Lullaby, written by Megan Merchant
"Winner Megan Merchant's poetry has the sudden fall into dream, tenderness, awakenings and delicate and crystalline images - the tone and lines are just right and seem to be in the language of a forest at night and the unseen eye in the wave."
- 2017 U.S. Poet Laureate

For your listening pleasure, we rev up this episode with 2018 Berkeley Grand Slam Champion Abe Becker's poetry. Some call Abe the Poet Laureate of Awkward - you decide. Hard on his heels, Cogitate presents devastating, scintillating poetry by Vernon Keeve III, and gorgeous short prose by Nancy Au.
