    by Candace Henry
    Everything But a Smile is a collection of poems that speak to acknowledgment, acceptance, and fight through the hollows and peaks of the human experience. The author, Candace D.

To read Everything But a Smile is to experience love, growth, pain, parenthood, friendship, abuse, societal systems, generations of assimilation, sexuality, and a l... more
  • Only for a Moment

    by Tabitha Vohn
    Poetry is an act of survival. A cry to everyone and no one. Intensely personal, shamelessly honest, and oftentimes an admission of inner ugliness, Only for a Moment chronicles nineteen years of the author’s life. It explores ideas of transience, transition, and redemption through the battlegrounds of metamorphosis from young girl to woman. Each poem presents a snapshot; a puzzle piece of what ultimately becomes a collective consciousness. A road map to trace back through the labyrinth of people ... more
  • The Year of Fear

    by Amaryllis Kent
    The Year of Fear tells the author's journey through the election cycle as a personal love story. From "love at first sight" to doubt, then anger and betrayal, until finally, release.
  • God & Other Poems

    by Maryrose Carroll
    God & Other Poems offers the very last, riveting poems of poet, publisher, anti-censorship-warrior, Paul Carroll. Undaunted by the knowledge that he would die in just weeks, he forged on, continuously writing, until semi-consciousness seized control. He jokes about having a date with God, laments that he is “tired of being a man.” He displays his endless imagination and brio in questions as “Have you ever looked closely at a horse’s vagina?” This is the same man who born into wealth, went t... more

  • Nancy Marguerite's Chopin

    by Anne Markham Bailey
    This 3 part poem explores Bailey’s relationship with her mother and the re-collecting of stories that shape the past. Bailey opens the work with images of mornings as a young girl on the piano bench beside her mother, Nancy Marguerite Perrin Bailey, who often played the Chopin Preludes. She fed her daughter a steady diet of art and literature, music and theater. Nancy Bailey was the librarian and journalism teacher at The Altamont School from 1970 – 1992.

    Poetry for those who need loving through a different demeanor.
  • Love Drink Fight Hate: Four Cantos at Serenissimo's Behest

    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

    Just consider there was no lust

    Oh my love,

  • The Gettysburg Undress

    by Rick Lupert
    Rick 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

Lupert’s poetry exists at the intersections of the wise and the ridiculous, the spectacular and the mundane. The humor and deeper themes throughout his work will win over the generations of people who’ve come to regard poetry as an inaccessible literary art. These poems, wr... more
