Partake of the NEW August issue of Thirteen Myna Birds - offering eight poems by Ariana D. Den Bleyker followed with oodles of poetry by Farkas, Jessie Janeshek, Samantha Duncan, and Paul Tristram!

"simmering in the spaces between your teeth - untouchable to angels - pretty tides flitter in lick - swollen, gauzy things - wet the ghostly fingers - globe over her shoulders - eye hole of coyote skull - like a cracked plate - A scream in these woods! - The first red and yellow tree installed in the bush - is or is not supposed to belong - I want to be black in a cluster of stars."



Apocalypse of Words: Interview with Alessandra Bava (regarding her Blood Pudding Press chapbook, "They Talk About Death")

KL: Your lines on García Lorca speak to every artist’s fear of being silenced, the work unfinished. Can the work ever be finished?

AB: García Lorca was murdered and silenced, but his words still speak and resonate deeply today. The work will never be finished, even after death occurs. What we have written will ultimately still be there for somebody else to read.

a few lines from the new interview of Alessandra Bava, about her new poetry chapbook, "They Talk About Death" (Blood Pudding Press, 2014), appearing within Cultural Weekly.

You can also read five poems from the chapbook within this interview.

First Poetry Publication of August!

Three collaborative poems by j/j hastain and Juliet Cook are now appearing within New Manifestos, along with lots of other odd goodies too!

Here's a few lines from one of those three collab poems, "A Multitude of Red Ring Fingers":

"Then we dreamed our own nest
not filled with birds or bate but
blood. We could rest there all
mowed and loaded with all kinds of fur.
Made up fur is no more faux than real fur
is ready to be
hot flax seed
oil drenched with blood.

Red torrential downpours of
fetus wings. Ring finger
slough. Cut it off

and see
what is

trough of strange



Another New Review of the new Blood Pudding Press chapbook, "They Talk About Death"

In these poems, where “the poet’s table… is set with/ bowls of steaming ink, with forked tongues/ feeding on Truth,” we’re immersed in a twilit world where poet and dead poet confront each other under the “murder of stars” – ultimately creating together the “beautiful corpse of/a poem.” 

from a new review by Nicole Rollender of the new Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "They Talk About Death" by Alessandra Bava.

NEW July Thirteen Myna Birds Flock!

A new oozing update to the Thirteen Myna Birds flock, offering an odd entourage of uncanny new poetry morsels by Jennifer MacBain-Stephens, Daniel M. Shapiro, Donavon Davidson, Jeffrey Zable, and John Grey - preceded by a teaser piece from the new Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "They Talk About Death" by Alessandra Bava. Step inside if you dare - http://13myna.blogspot.com/.

"I dip my fingers in your scars - pilfering flesh like it was the future - kinetic spasms of gloss, hair, bone, and tendon - when light strikes light head on, a life must end - a cut, dirty swan - falling into a dark hole - dead fruit falling from trees - seep up through rotting flower stalks - little lambs eat their hearts out - it immediately disintegrated in my hands - fingertips to blades - hyenas in celluloid nightgowns"


The First Review of the New Blood Pudding Press chapbook - "They Talk About Death" by Alessandra Bava

"Bava engages the past -- Rimbaud, Sexton, Miller, Plath -- but also dances with a very lively muse, Patti Smith. Although tinged with the blackness of "the apocalypse of words" the buoyancy of hope is what raises the reader well above despair. Salomé may turn John's severed head into lamp, but only for her own creative spark."

An excerpt from the very first review of the new Blood Pudding Pres
