NEW! The May Flock of Thirteen Myna Birds has arrived!

The Fairy Spirit of the Amaryllis by MISH
The NEW May flock of Thirteen Myna Birds is here, filled with poetry/art by Eileen Murphy, Sara Lefsyk, Patrick Hurley, Sarah Nichols, MISH, and Sara Minges!

"during this time of pandemic - Sky is cloudless; birds don't sing - and the days Are quiet as death - gargling instead of brushing teeth - I’m transcribing documents that were written by ghosts with feathers and dust - Shift managers and supervisors demand and take - take these new pills and calm down - the control module has been jammed by fragments - a doll falling out of a tree - faster than cancer - we were wearing the dress of altered states - I was rolling around in some flowers with vomit in my hair - the shape of spilled fluid - enter the final labyrinth - every sky ends with nameless colors - flowers carry sickness here - I speak the language of darkness - we carry the burdens of ourselves and our sisters - I had on the face of an animal over the mask of a girl"

NEW! Three of Juliet Cook's Museum of Impending Death poems appear in Burning House Press!

"Trying to focus on what feels meaningful to me in this moment.
Trying not to let my own thoughts reside inside nothing but impending death.
Trying not to let my own thoughts reside inside this giant nihilistic
ever expanding sky filled with rising numbers of dead stars."


Three of Juliet Cook's Museum of Impending Death poems are up at Burning House Press today.

Another NEW Review of Juliet Cook's new poetry chapbook - The Rabbits With Red Eyes

"Juliet will rob you of any inkling of innocence you may have left and you will thank her for it. You will thank her because she is not jerking you around. She doesn't tip toe through poetry. She is a beautiful disaster. She walks the blurred line with every line of her poems...

...Any time I want to be reminded I'm alive and escape the mediocre day, I will come back to this book."

part of a wonderful new review by Casey Kiser of Juliet Cook's  poetry chapbook, "The Rabbits With Red Eyes"

***
"The world is beginning slowness, about to slide into the muddy banks - Our bones lock our refreshed hearts in a new cage - a twisted birthday where one woke at their funeral - we jump and pounce on each other - nowhere to run - the squirrel with brains knocked out by someone's car - Complete items are wrong, ugly, incorrect - you want me to notice the words, what remains of them. What did they mean before and what do they mean now? - How many times a day do I place false closures on the ends of words? - just grey and white and swollen with brine - driving on her own ghost train - I pretend to fit the correct ends into sockets - blood drawn, buttoned lips - and out it comes, surprising you with its ferocity - pleasure gardens for hyenas - The occupation of colors avalanches - Annihilate me and my fairy tale"
