NEW Review of Poking Through...by Lora Bloom (a 2013 Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, reviewed by Lisa Cole)

A new book review written by Lisa Cole about the 2013 Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "Poking through the Fabric of the Light that Formed Us: Songs and Stories to Read in the Mirror" by Lora Bloom!

Here's the first paragraph - Lora Bloom’s new chapbook from Blood Pudding Press, Poking Through the Fabric of Light That Formed Us: Songs and Stories to Read in the Mirror is not for the faint of heart, or the faint of stomach. This is a place where undigested noodles, burps, projectile nausea, and chunks of eyelids are deemed normal, and things most often deemed beautiful are viewed in a new, less favorable, often ghastly light. This collection is filled with things grotesque and horrific but still captivating. In the poem “Remember,” for example, the sun “heaved its dry spew” and “bloodied itself on the earth’s rocky crags’ and in “Pizza Maker,” moons are “battered” “bloody” and “slaughtered.”
