NEW Book Review of Blood Pudding Press poet Nicole Rollender's poetry chapbook "Bone of My Bone" by Blood Pudding Press poet Alessandra Bava at Sabotage Reviews

In the narrator’s footsteps, we face the grief of giving birth nine weeks early, a baby “rowing out” the inert body “as the waters shake through me.” The speaker asks her dead mother for consolation and help: “You tell her how your body failed, / the baby was born nine weeks early. / Her hands make the shape of wings. / […] You say the hummingbird is too frantic to watch. / To keep the baby alive, you hold him over your heart, / skin on skin.” Images akin to Anne Sexton, confessional in ways that can be beautiful, piercing, harrowing and real.

From another new review of the coming-soon (in less than a week!) Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "Bone of My Bone" by Nicole Rollender.
