“In other words, call 911, leave the decoys, and head for the access.”
“Yes!” I shouted, to make my point.

“So, do I.”

I was pieced together

I am patron saint
of so many things
wisdom and just warfare
always at odds
with the pieces of myself

Reading Backwards Through the Yellow by Carolyn Srygley-Moore

Full Length - 6" x 9", 70 pages, ISBN: 978-1978284227
In previous works, Carolyn Srygley-Moore has proven herself superior to any secular GPS navigational system through her ability to intertwine precise locations in physical space with their affiliated emotional state. "Reading Backwards Through the Yellow" takes us beyond Euclidean geometries as though we clicked on Street View in Google Maps. Srygley-Moore's stark and beautiful photographic images provide a rootedness to each group of poems that follow, encouraging the reader to declare, "I believe, because I was there."
- Loring Wirbel , writer, poet, community activist

"Carolyn Srygley-Moore carries the DNA of the New York and Black Mountain schools into the beginning of the short 21st Century. Every bit as attuned to the ecology of the word and the language of nature as Bernadette Mayer and Alice Notley have been, Carolyn's poems will knock your socks off, and make you forget you even had hands to put them on. The rediscovering is wondrous."
- Dan Coffey, Iowa Center for the Book, and Poet's Quarterly

A Character Studies by Scaramouche Black

Mixed Media - 8.5" x 11", 48 pages, ISBN: 978-1978284241
About the author:
Scaramouche Black
is nowhere near so dark
or mysterious as her name
might imply - though
for better or worse,
she's just as dramatic
as you'd suspect.
Fear not, Dear Readers -
she is working on that.
When not writing and drawing
in a mad attempt
to exorcise various demons,
Ms. Black
can be found
gracing local stages.
And by "local"
she means the stages
of Northern England.
For now....

a week ago we soared through the sky
with all parts intact and fully functional.
I didn't need to look out deep, endless windows
we will never have the biology to fly, no matter
our construction, no matter the fantasy of the air-
and the air is a fantasy you breathe easy and pure
descend slowly on telephone lines beyond reach
to know what I am made of will never be enough.

...poetry should be subversive turning
your heart and mind against one another,
making them rivals and best friends
because of it. poetry should challenge
the reader without alienating them.
stimulate them without stringing them out.
it should be concise without being spare.

Masha Allah by And(y)i Line

Published February 4, 2017
Chapbook - 48 pages, 5.5" x 8.5", ISBN: 9781542756068
"Were you proud of the way you turned them against me, as if I were the predator? This is not a poem about how much I hate you, or how broken I am; it's a celebration of reclamation and budding wings! of not feeling sick to my stomach every time a new man touches me, of not running from soft music and lit candles as if they are the fires of hell."
- Wing Buds [pt. 2]

"In a state of mind every bit as broken as 36 years of trampled eggshells, she told me she loved me. It was only the second time I'd ever seen her, but I had no doubt that those words were the closest things to truth that she owned."
- For Teri

Watch especially how he exploits the sonnet form. Johnson doesn't pander: as a poet, he's the real deal.

Jonathan captures exactly with his photographs exactly what I had in mind with my poetry for this collection.
