Perfect Crime - $12.80 (Limited time) (We pay the Shipping)

by David Weiss

 

 

“Perfect Crime is brilliant!”     — Jody Stewart.

 

“Perfect Crime is a haunted book. In it one feels a pas de deux of despair and obliquity, of image and abstraction. A wry, humorous darkness broods over the pages. Greek myths that thread through the book–Demeter, Andromache, Chronos, Kore, Echo, Hermes and the gang–imply a larger pattern of doom for humans–humans who have “expiration dates” and are usually crushed in their passionate contacts with gods. In the face of such doom, the human exercise of consciousness, through language, is a brave defiance, that these poems act out in page after page. Perfect Crime feels like one long poem, a “highway / with no exit ramps” and “no exits,” coherent in tone and method."     — Rosanna Warren

Where I Come From - $11.99 ($2.99 Shipping)

by Jackie Warren Moore

 

 

Of this poet, Rachel Guido deVries writes, “Jackie Warren-Moore’s poems take a good, clear look at our world and its ‘passing of civility.’  She writes with passion and rage about ‘Uncle Joe’ stealing her innocence, and can take on the voice of a Trayvon or a Grandmother with equal force and insight.  Her concluding poem, where ‘the women gather in circles’ and ‘make plans to rock the world,’  speaks to the passion and fervor with which she takes on that world, and pushes us to do the same.”
