Magnolia Swirl by MISH

"All your glory’s hidden by folded masks - Scents of sharp sterile swabs - Moths batter themselves against the tent - Talons will tear a coverlet in pink - grey matter splattered upon the wall you beat your head against - Merciless ravaging of life - We are twins in different universes - the halos of tarnished angels - the slow decay of bodies - the sweetness of an imagined kiss - where each of us holds to this strange broken world - when those loud fires came into her dreams - Tomorrow another mask"

the newborns might just be a hoax.
A doll whose eyes are bleeding

sour raspberry jam. A mouth rasping,
trying to hiss its way out of a dollhouse.

This mental interrogation chamber
is a swimming pool filled with vodka.

This mental interrogation chamber
is a swimming pool loaded with wine
underneath a broken diving board dripping glass.

NEW! An Interview with Juliet Cook about poetry, conducted by Michael Sikkema, appearing in periodicities

"To express rather than repress. To explore my own thoughts and feelings. To extract some of the negativity out of my system. To release parts of my own repetitive streaks. To blow up my own self-created mental balloon animals. To reveal parts of the real me.  To possibly connect my thoughts and feelings with others who might relate."
This is Juliet Cook answering some interesting poetry questions from Michael Sikkema - and the interview was published by rob mclennan at periodicities : a journal of poetry and poetics.

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.
