Excerpt:
"According to an assessment,
my mind is an empty aquarium.
I am forced to sit in this special classroom
where every wooden bookshelf
is a reminder that I never
escaped the 4th grade.
Insults drip from the holes in the ceiling.
This carpet is soaked with insecurities."
           - My Imperfect Brain

Back of the Book:
" 'In the Beginning and the End' marks the dramatic appearance of a major new voice in contemporary poetry.  Pierce's poems are rooted in the American experience, where "we had a barn where Grandma and Grandpa / made love on the floor / to celebrate the purchase of the land."  But the author, unconstrained, is a "night train", and her acreage is the cosmos.  Buy this book."

This book contains not only poetry by the author, but full color images captured by the author of her visual artwork.

Chapbook (plus Free PDF)

$0.99 USD
E-book (PDF)
Excerpt
Coz you make me want to die
Coz you make me dead already
Coz you grind my life hours down

So Bosses of the world
I should kill you and then
Kill myself
I should kill myself and then
Everybody else

I think in death we'll
All get on better.
- Bosses of the World
TO THE STILLNESS, THE SILENCE, AND THE ENDLESS BOREDOM  

TO THE DUMB BLUEBIRD IN BROKEN TREES  

TO THE BOTTLES AND THE LOST EYES  

TO THE ONES WHO SAID THEY'D MAKE IT  

WHAT DOES ANYONE EVER REALLY KNOW?  

IF IT'S TRUTH THEN IT'S SOMETHING  

IF IT'S TRUTH THEN IT'S A POEM
