“The world is beginning slowness, about to slide into the muddy banks – Our bones lock our refreshed hearts in a new cage – a twisted birthday where one woke at their funeral – we jump and pounce on each other – nowhere to run – the squirrel with brains knocked out by someone’s car – Complete items are wrong, ugly, incorrect – you want me to notice the words, what remains of them. What did they mean before and what do they mean now? – How many times a day do I place false closures on the ends of words? – just grey and white and swollen with brine – driving on her own ghost train – I pretend to fit the correct ends into sockets – blood drawn, buttoned lips – and out it comes, surprising you with its ferocity – pleasure gardens for hyenas – The occupation of colors avalanches – Annihilate me and my fairy tale”

A NEW Review of Juliet Cook’s new poetry chapbook – The Rabbits With Red Eyes!

By Juliet Blood Pudding

“A beautifully crafted and meticulously stitched little book that speaks volumes on its bright white pages. Poetry vociferous in honesty and violent in imagery leaves typed tracks across a heart of blemishes while shrinking into its own stew of consciousness. Here is emoting to the fourth degree, crispy and well singed, tempestuously supple on the inside.”
A delightful new review of Juliet Cook’s new poetry chapbook, “The Rabbits With Red Eyes” (published by Ethel Zine & Micro-Press). Thank you very much to Janie C.

Step Inside Juliet Cook’s New Poetry Chapbook – The Rabbits With Red Eyes

By Juliet Blood Pudding

“When will you belong to yourself?
For years, you have hidden the blood
against your own scalp,
but then he tells you to cut off your hair.
He thinks the choice is his.

Blood orange drips down
your throat until you gag
in these dream scenes that turn you
into another unworthy nightmare
body culminating in nothing
but scissors and long hair
and extreme power outage.”

inside Juliet Cook’s poem “Flowers are Worth More than Females”

within her new poetry chapbook, The Rabbits With Red Eyes, published by the wonderful Ethel Zine & Micro-Press in March 2020 and available HERE –

On Hold

By Dianne Borsenik These are unsettling times. We here at the press were as blindsided by the rapidity of onset of the health crisis and the closing of businesses as were you all. Although I agree with the social distancing and self-isolating that we’ve been encouraged to follow, it has impacted NBP in ways I didn’t foresee.

Because of the way NBP approaches an art-book concept, we rely heavily on various small businesses to continue our work. At the core of the press is how we obtain our paper and card stock. As all non-essential businesses are now closed in Ohio, I cannot get the paper, nor the card stock, I need to make books. I also cannot have covers printed at our local print shop. NightBallet Press is on hold.

I wish to reassure my poets, my subscribers, my readers, my supporters, that NightBallet Press is very much alive and eager to get back to work. We can only hope that this crisis passes quickly and that our friends can get their businesses reopened so we can resume publication. I realize how disappointing this must be for many of you, and I want you to know I appreciate, from the bottom of my heart, your friendship, your patience, your understanding, and the trust you’ve put in me and NBP.

May you stay healthy and safe during this time. I love you.

NEW in Burning House Press – A Fairy Tale Covered in Underwater Ashes by Juliet Cook and j/j hastain

By Juliet Blood Pudding

Secretaries shampooing
the latest hair style,
then cutting it,
burning it,
sticking bits of burnt hair as bookmarks
in between the crumbling pages
that have been tearing themselves apart
with every turn.

A NEW Review by Casey Kiser of the Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, PEDIOPHOBIA by Daniel G. Snethen!

Mar 03 2020

By Juliet Blood Pudding

“A collection this gracefully twisted can only come from Blood Pudding Press. If you don’t have doll paranoia now, you must read this to see what you’re missing! I promise the poems in Snethen’s book will give you the creeps but mostly, you will be more disturbed by how much you enjoy it. This is an absolute must-have for any chapbook collector.”
From a new review by Casey Kiser of the latest Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, PEDIOPHOBIA by Daniel G. Snethen​!
