Poetry

  • The Skywriter

    by Ticic
    This book is a very internationally minded collection and - for a poetry book - quite a narrative one. It deals with lived experiences and intimacies to do with locations as diverse as China, various parts of Europe and the United States, where the protagonist is a young woman who is originally Croatian. Thus, the different points of view overlap and evolve as the story quite literally pushes you forward.
  • Angels of Hell: Poetic Tales of the Apocalypse vol. 1

    by Chris ~cliff~ Reichard
    A modern Epic for fans of narrative poetry in the vein of Dante's Inferno, the Odyssey & Beowulf! The End times have come for the 7th cycle of creation, and the Four Horsemen lead the charge for humanity's fate. In the midst of their ride to conquer for Hell something stirred deep inside changing their resolve. Now the remnants of mankind stand under their protection, and the agents of Heaven, Hell, Gods & Fae best make way 'fore they find themselves damned as well.

  • Afterglow

    by Michelle Marie Jacquot
    Afterglow is a collection of poetry from a strange time. Starting in 2020 and ending somewhere between then and now, it's about figuring out what living really means. It's laughing through the world's collapse, searching for meaning in almost everything, fighting and embracing solitude, and realizing that everything could change at any moment. It's learning to look for an afterglow in all things. To throw your hands up, surrender, and feel the sun coming.
  • Life on the Run: The Reverses of Life

    by Brian Michael Hurll
    Life on the Run is a continuation of my love for talking about Nature, Love, Holidays, and topical themes. is amalgamation of topics is a chance to continue with all the subjects that will always appear in my poems. Writing unloads my mind and is good and relaxing to my soul. I realised a while ago that our minds are very complex libraries, which continually fuel our thoughts and generate the work we write. So this larger volume with twice as many poems almost brings us up to date. Althou... more

  • Spirit

    by James Murdock
    Spirit dives deep into present beauty and brutality, enhancing the prism through which we perceive and value our experience. Murdock’s take is timeless; his poems are born when his heart catches his soul, exploring the warmth of friendship, joy of love, and shameful justification for cruelty and violence. The gamut lies within / sit down / open it / and bring your spirit along.

  • Skin & Bones: Song Lyrics

    by Jeff Mellin

    Skin & Bones is the first-ever collection of lyrics by songwriter / artist Jeff Mellin. Named for a lyric from his "tour de force"* album Jeff Mellin Saves the World (Stereorrific, 1999), the book covers songs from Mellin's bare-bones coffeehouse days to his later, more fleshed-out power-pop material.

Love. is a collection of poetry and spoken word expressing 30+ years of living, loving, and learning in the Black liberation movement, Black queer communities, and Black radical tradition.

  • Riot of Roses

    by Brenda Vaca
    This collection of poems, RIOT OF ROSES, is at once a confrontation, a confession, an embrace. It took me 44 years to love myself with abandon and to trust myself as a writer. I caught glimpses of this deep love throughout my life. I even preached about it on Sundays twice - in English and en Español - for over a decade as a pastor. Still, I was restrained and bound by my gender and by my culture, and literally collared by religiosity. Thankfully, Spirit planted a love for words and stories deep... more
  • The Lesser Light

    by Philip Wexler
    These are the first 500 of a larger in-progress collection of poems related to the moon. They were inspired by the woodblock print series, 100 Views of the Moon by the 19th century Japanese artist, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, though the poems do not directly correspond to the prints. Rather, the prints were a jumping-off point. The poems represent the author’s personal take on the moon or what, in his environment or psyche, brings the moon to mind or into view. They were triggered by thoughts, fanta... more
