A NEW Review of the Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "i saw god cooking children / paint their bones" by john compton

"These pieces stitched together in artistic fashion by a wonderful small press look to creators who fall out of love with their subjects. A parent treating its child poorly for how they're born is like a god prone to damn all humanity without giving it a chance. Plenty of honest pictures lie within these beautiful pages. Every one of them unique.

- Tim Heerdink, author of Razed Monuments, The Human Remains, and Red Flag and Other Poems"

Thank you very much to Tim Heerdink for his wonderful review of the new Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "i saw god cooking children / paint their bones" by john compton

i saw god cooking children / paint their bones by john compton (Blood Pudding Press, 2020) has found a new home!

John Burroughs received new books today, including the new Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "i saw god cooking children / paint their bones" with poems by john compton, cover art by Sandra Feen, and an inside review/blurb by Burroughs himself!

Here is Burroughs' review:

"I keep devouring this chapbook over and over because john compton’s work richly rewards repeat readings.

i saw god cooking children / paint their bones showcases the best of it with delightfully rich detail, fine turns of phrase and lean and engaging true tales.

Blood Pudding Press’ wonderful handcrafted artistry gives you another reason to want to keep picking it up.

But instead of going on and on about how much I like this collection, I encourage you to procure your own copy and see what I mean."

—John Burroughs, Ohio Beat Poet Laureate, 2019-2021, and author of Rattle and Numb.

Thank you to John Burroughs for this photo and his review ๐Ÿ’œ!

"we bleed paint like animals - ballerina pink with feline drool - boiling at the core - a powerful impression on energized receptors - campaigns of promises made with mud - The streets all feel so hopeless - every word we don’t speak burrows through our throats - Trivia demands attention as the body hangs limp - From the only slot that opens here - Little pumpkin-headed baby, toothless and hollow - Night gives no reason to let her live - The moon continues, so still - A small head broken - a rusted refrigerator shoved over a railing from the second floor - Barking dogs tied to the radiator of misery - with reams of poems - cut a slit in the neck hang them upside down - Rainbows of blood - beyond the rivers, cliffs, and tombs..."
