On Daring to Eat the Pear: Heretical Narratives By Edward Simon
Paperback: $10.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
"On Daring to Eat the Pear" engages narratives of a heretical nature. Ancient blasphemies, and the remnants of dead faith all commingle. Simon tells stories in a language profound and... More > enigmatic. Simon mines alike the obscure and the famous of history to write poems that are only confessional to the nature of reality. In these pages you will find stories in poetry ranging from a blues singer named Cadmon (or Kadmon) Delph who generates reality with his guitar, to the surreal and magically realist story of idol smashers being chased away from a dissolved monastery by a screaming, burning statue of Christ. Simon's work consciously doesn't imitate the staid conventions of modern lyric poetry in either intent, structure or theme. The narratives are all unified by a deep seated desire to find a new verse, one that is able to explicate the many functions of our post-faith religious condition. Simon's poems are prayers to a God who isn't there.< Less

“The Unreliable Narrator Is King/Dead” is a Madding Mission Jotter Book. Created by Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé, the Madding Mission Series encourages hypergraphia. It thinks Plath... More > writes awesome poems. Plath should have met Dickinson. Dylan Thomas too. Shelley. Poe. Lord Byron. Artaud and Baudelaire. Who can forget Hart Crane? Versus Eliot. John Berryman and Robert Lowell, who knew they joined these ranks? And of course, Celan. Whitman, whose “right hand points to landscapes of continents, and a plain public road…. Perhaps it is everywhere on water and on land.” Together they would write great things, Plath thinks out loud, to no one in particular. She has brought her pen to paper. There is madness in the method, and sometimes a little bit or a whole lot of genius too.< Less

Bad Poetry Night By E. Christopher Clark
Paperback: $10.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
In the 1990s, the late, great Bradford College put on a series of Bad Poetry Nights for their beleaguered student writers. These fast-paced evenings of literary shenanigans had one simple premise:... More > compose the worst possible poem you could in five minutes or less, using 3-5 absurd words plucked from a hat by the hosts. The only trouble was this: give a talented writer a set of clear constraints, no matter how ridiculous, and they can’t help but produce something compelling. It is in that spirit that E. Christopher Clark (Bradford’s Class of 1999), traditionally an author of novels and short fiction, presents his first collection of verse.< Less
