by Yankee Alighieri"From how many elements," asks the immortal Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (aka Serenissimo), "Should a proper song be nourished"? Four to be precise: love, drink, fight, hate. And so for every element Yankee Alighieri has seen fit to provide us with an entire canto, the culmination of which is a paean to Western Civilization in general and English-speaking civilization in particular -- with America at the helm. Epic in scale and content Love Drink Fight Hate will carry you from the windy plains ... more
by Surinder Binner
Loving you is the second best thing
I have done.
Finding you is the first.
Just consider there was no lust
Hope you can trust
Oh my love,
I wish you trust.

by Rick LupertRick Lupert's The Gettysburg Undress is a delightful romp through the museums and tourist attractions of the mid-Atlantic States. I found it more believable than Steinbeck's Travels with Charlie. His wife, Addie, is a more interesting personality by far than a poodle. His observations are written in a minimalist style which is a cross between Basho and Brautigan. Each poem is a tiny masterpiece. Some poems, like "Animal Hospital," strike a ghostly chord. His humor is inclusive, making the reader... more

by Anahit ArustamyanMy Intoxicated Ink is a poetry book. It is the collection of my best poems. The book is rich in metaphors and allegorical expressions. Deep thoughts and romantic feelings are expressed in all my poems.
by WeaselI devoured the quite satisfying "warm place to self-destruct" in mere hours, and it is time well spent in the theatre of imagination. Weasel’s poems transport you into this hypnotic, darkly erotic, elegiac, fatalistic netherworld; an invitation to his private purgatory of fears and desires. Do yourself a favor and curl up with this passionate monster of a book. It will resonate with you long after you've turned the last page. —Brian Kehinde, author of Synchronicity In Violence. Weasel is l... more

by Philip DoddStill the Dawn. A book of poems and ballads. Poems written to preserve memories, explore moods, emotions, art, myths, real events and dreams, together with some attempts at light verse, even nonsense. Ballads that tell tales, reflect on the seasons, time and its passing. The poet enters the mead hall, un-lids his word hoard, recites. He shares his gift. Those who attend to his works, he hopes to entertain.
by Bethany MooreLovers sometimes take strange forms. This is a story about a brilliant and creative man who weaved in and out of my life for more than 16 years until his life ended unexpectedly and tragically. In early 2016, he was hit by a car while crossing the street. He was a complex man who wrestled with great demons while having the ear of angels. Our love was similarly complicated, and spread across many years and dimensions. These poems and prose are an intimate insight through the eyes of m... more

by Alicia G. Smith-MackallPoetry has given me a voice to express the many emotions I am feeling at a particular time. I grew up in the era when children were to be seen and not heard. Childhood was difficult for me because I loved to talk, but I was not allowed or encouraged to address my feelings, nor was I even asked what I thought. I was the youngest child of four for eight years but still the baby girl. By the eleventh year of my life, I was no longer the baby; I became the middle child. People can?t comprehend what ... more
