Regie Cabico’s first full-length poetry collection includes more than four dozen new poems that reflect on the poet’s life. Inspired by Frank O’Hara and Gertrude Stein, A Rabbit in Search of a Rolex is a multiverse of surreal and witty meditations, a tarot of micro-poetic divinations.
Forthcoming - Nov 15, 2023. Orders placed prior to the publication date will be fulfilled on that date.

“Regie Cabico — queer brown wood nymph crown prince of the underworld of Asian American arts and desire. A Rabbit in Search of a Rolex is your welcome pass to that underworld. It's a one-way ticket.” —Lawrence-Minh Bùi Davis, Curator at the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center
