  • Biting Thorns Off Roses

    by Megan E. Hoffman

    Biting Thorns Off Roses is a transmutation of deep pain.

    Through poetry, Hoffman strives to not only remove, but to also intimately examine the masks we all wear to hide from the world—and perhaps most importantly, the ones we wear to hide from ourselves.       

    Hoffman brings into question the ways in which we, as individuals and as a society, approach trauma. She shakes the very foundation... more

  • Next Time You Come Home

    by Lisa Dordal
    In NEXT TIME YOU COME HOME, Lisa Dordal distills one hundred eighty letters she received from her mother over a twelve-year period (1989-2001) into short, meditative entries that reflect upon motherhood, marriage, grief, the beauty of the natural world, same-sex relationships, and the passage of time. The final entries are something between letters and poems—not fully letters and not fully poems but, instead, their own thing—and portray a mother who, despite her alcoholism, maintains an engaged ... more

    by Ron Perovich

  • Beautiful Blue Sky

    by Tim Pompey
    Nature. Humanity. Spirit. Each is interconnected and matched together like a well-sewn coat. These poems explore that interconnection and ask essential questions about life. The author probes his own psyche, the world around him, and the powers, seen and unseen, that hold it all together. Like air, lungs, and blood, there are small and universal synapses that create the elements, the animals, the trees, and the souls that behold it all. And above everything, the sky watches, adapts to our existe... more
  • Twelve Sonnets: A Defense of Spirit

    by Kevin Farnham
    "Twelve Sonnets: A Defense of Spirit" is a prosimetrum, a collection of poems alternating with counterpoint prose that connects the poems and amplifies their content. The subject matter is Nature, Physics, Spirit, Consciousness, and romantic love. The book argues that the idea that spirit does not exist is a self-contradiction, argues that modern Physics proves that the Universe is not a machine, and illustrates spirit in action both in Nature and within our own being.

  • Lilith Rising

    by Stephanie Ellis
    Like evolution itself, nothing about the story in these pages was born of a plan. It’s a collection of “What ifs.” The authors didn’t discuss the story in advance, they simply performed it. The penultimate premise? What if the biblical progenitors of humanity were bent on its eventual destruction? The answer is here between these covers, in the form of a heavy-metal armageddon meltdown fueled by rage, passion, firepower, and hellfire. This is epic poetry like you’ve never read before—ir... more
