Poetry

  • Exits

    by Stephen C. Pollock
    A recipient of the Rolfe Humphries Poetry Prize, Stephen C. Pollock’s debut collection nods to the literary tradition of years past while simultaneously speaking to the present moment. Multilayered and musical, the poems in Pollock’s “Exits” have drawn comparisons to the work of Eavan Boland and Seamus Heaney. With bold imagery, attention to form, and a consistent throughline rooted in the theme of mortality, his collection responds to contemporary anxieties surrounding death and decay and the u... more

  • Family Treasons

    by JL Huffman
    FAMILY TREASONS is a treatise on the perils of abuse, whether physical, emotional, or sexual, at the hands of a parent, a spouse, or another relative, a one-time event, or an ongoing trial. These events are often publicly labeled as shameless, nameless, and blameless. While those who perpetrated such evils are not guileless, they certainly dealt with their own demons. This is not to exonerate them but as a recognition of the complex cycle of abuse.
  • Almanac: The Four Seasons

    by JL Huffman
    ALMANAC: THE FOUR SEASONS takes the reader on a journey via the vehicle of an almanac, traveling through the year, season by season. Nature predominates the scene; an occasional human pops in to enjoy the view. Join the author on a jaunt through seasonal wonderlands filled with flora and fauna: winter, spring, summer and fall.
  • On the Making of a Bitch & Other Siren Songs

    by Senai Asar
    Part of the story of the bitch is embedded in the story of the siren. Interpretations and definitions of what they both are generally stem from one root cause-- a male-dominated society’s attempt to malign women who do not follow societal mores designed to constrict female sexuality. Given this common source and origin, it is not difficult to imagine so-called bitches singing along with their mythical siren sisters of their shared experiences, their shared stories. In this poetry collection,... more
  • Crystal Reflection

    by Belinda LaForce
    Crystal Reflection represents the author’s passion for the expression of deep feelings, releasing thoughts that were previously kept unrevealed and silent through written words on a page. Each poem describes in some way how life can take a toll on our spirit and sanity, especially when we are not honest with ourselves and others about who we truly are as a person and smother our desires and dreams, not allowing ourselves to experience the life we are meant to have and feeling the freedom to achi... more
  • Reveal Yourself: The best version of you is looking right through your eyes

    by Matthew Scigousky
    Reveal Yourself is a book of poetry is designed to inspire and awaken the soul. My poetry is based on the positive mindset and unlocking new ways to look at things through a lens of opportunity. I believe no matter the color of our skin, gender, or ethnicity we as people all go through very similar things in life. Our common bond is struggle, adversity, and challenges. We all face them in life. The difference maker is some of us try and run away and avoid while others understand that by embra... more
  • From the abyss…Into the ether…

    by Anusha Akella
    About the book... Writing, for me has always been something extremely comforting and cathartic. Poetry is all about perception and perspective; And in this little collection, you might find some dark, some emotional and some possibly even heartening poetry. All I can say is that they were written from a place of honesty and vulnerability. I have also shared some of my artwork in this book-I don't claim to be a great artist, but art has been my beacon of hope in trying times. It is what I fall ... more

  • GREENWOOD POET

    by Lancelot Schaubert
    The Greenwood Poet spent two years spelunking the archive, grounds, and barrows of Greenwood Cemetery — America's oldest and greatest rural cemetery. While there, he uncovered stories of love and loss, stories of shipwreck and tragedy. And he met several Fae creatures who had something to say about New York city. Written mostly in heroic meter with a couple breaks for spoken word and Renaissance meters, The Greenwood Poet calls us to return to the Arcadia in our own neighborhood. And does so ... more
  • Restless for Words: Poems

    by DeWitt Henry
    Former Shakespeare teacher, novelist, memoirist, and founding editor of Ploughshares, DeWitt Henry in his first full collection of poems goes in varied and unexpected directions, from "mapping the heart" to meditating on the DNA of everyday words such as "candidate." He delights in quick-witted, gymnastic free association, contrary directions of thought and argument, and freely negotiates between the colloquial and literary, the personal and the cultural, and mixes moral searching with a benign,... more

The narrator, a Dominican queer woman, is caught between the heartbreaking end of a 5-year relationship with her ex-girlfriend and the love-bombing glamor of her new love.

They begin to plan their ... more

  • Holy Sparks

    by Diana Woodcock
    A collection of poetry with an ecotheological spin, the poems in Holy Sparks are grounded in a belief in the kinship between the cosmos and its Creator. Biophilic imagery is used throughout the poems to suggest that reverence for the earth is a natural consequence of reverence for God. The language of poetry is used to interconnect the human, natural and sacred, and to express humanity’s moral and ethical responsibility to our nonhuman kin. These poems question what it means for humans to live ... more
