New! Juliet Cook's poem "Some of the Dolls Hide in the Basement" in The Rising Phoenix Review!

"Some of them were thrown down the stairs by others.
Some of them threw themselves down.
Some of them were shaken and dragged

by the mouths of dogs, smell like filthy
dried out saliva mixed with blood stains.
The dolls with eyes that will never be put back together."

part of Juliet Cook's poem, "Some of the Dolls Hide in the Basement', in The Rising Phoenix Review

The NEW May Flock of Thirteen Myna Birds has arrived (starting with three teaser piece poems from the new Blood Pudding Press chapbook)!

The NEW May flock of Thirteen Myna Birds is here!


It begins with three teaser piece poems from the new Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "POISON MOONLIGHT" by Jason O'Toole. It is filled with new poetry by John Sweet, E. Martin Pedersen, Kristin Garth, Don Thompson, R. Bremner, Tom Montag, and Yuan Changming.


"The peculiar smell of the inevitable stops time - it gets in your blood like poison does, and then you die - No longer one with the natural world - you trade strange monsters - it’s your voice of truth born of your myth of truth - glowering between Mercury and an international space station - Poppies that used to be enlightened have a jaundiced and flaccid look - Neuro-witchcraft: the hippocampus boiling a cauldron of bad memories - where images of people I’ve long forgotten dance furiously in vain hope that I’ll remember - demons start to revolt With ghosts from under the ground - been wanting to burn down this goddamn town since the day we arrived - homemade bread of disabling dread - laying eggs above alligators - In a tsunami filled with viruses & monsters - with their lopsided pentagram - Probability is half of it - We each believe our selves to be The hero on our own stage - and when i show you what i’ve written, you tell me to leave..."
