NEW Tinderbox Editions Book Interview with Nicole Rollender about her poetry chapbook Bone of My Bone, coming soon from Blood Pudding Press!

"My son, my second child, was born nine weeks premature. I woke up at 5 a.m. to find that my water had broken, so we took this eerie, awful drive to the hospital with my daughter chattering in the backseat. I didn’t feel him move for more than half the trip, and I kept thinking we had lost him. It was surreal and terrifying. Several of the poems in the chapbook are concerned with this – what if I lose a child I had never met?"
from a new Book Interview with Nicole Ross Rollender, about her COMING SOON Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "Bone of My Bone".

New poem up at Thank You for Swallowing

"Why can’t they feel us,
a shimmering force field
inside the red clots.
Most just want to feel flesh.
They don’t care if it’s damaged,
as long as it opens for them."
from the poem "WE WANT OUT" by Juliet Cook in Thank You for Swallowing

NEW Review of Fiddle Is Flood by Lauren Gordon (Blood Pudding Press, 2015)

 "Gordon moves from the pure white milk to the mud and grime. Dirt lines the cracks and spine of this collection in such a delectable way. "


"Gordon repeats the word “sweet” a word often used to describe little girls, but it is disturbing in a sense here. Other words like “hot” and “spittle” really deliver the tone home to an all-new way of thinking about this particular time period as well as punching us in our modern-age guts, conjuring up countless stories we’ve all heard about the street harassment of women (and even young girls)."

Just a few lines from a wonderfully detailed new review of the Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "Fiddle Is Flood" by Lauren Gordon.

Thank you very much to Jennifer MacBain-Stephens​ for writing this wonderful review.


After partaking of this new review, you might want to partake of the entire chapbook, by purchasing a copy for yourself, from the Blood Pudding Press shop here -  https://www.etsy.com/listing/227601065/new-fiddle-is-flood-by-lauren-gordon?ref=shop_home_active_2


Before July ends a NEW Thirteen Myna Birds begins!

From Thirteen all the way down to Zero, Thirteen Myna Birds is all up & down with new poems by MeLaina Elise Ramos, Martin Willitts Jr., Jessie Janeshek, Ezhno Martín, Sarah Greenleaf, and Max Mundan at http://13myna.blogspot.com/

"You are my strange insect - voice among red and black wires - bloodletting for relief - tilt from the timbers on metal prosthetics - steal the world from the butcher - i filled the space between my joints with fine green glitter - conveniently created a god to codify inequality - I become this siren-thing, mouth open because isn’t that what you want most? - Wake up, little earthling - The space between is the distance between two hands."


New Poem up at The Plot

"In one dream scene, it was a bag full of rye bread.
In the next dream scene, it was a bag full of rye dick.
A big dildo in a bread bag or a real dick in a doggy bag
ready to be shoved into the trash compacter."
The first four lines of Juliet Cook's poem "DISPOSAL", which is up at The Plot (An online literary journal by Villainess Press)
