Happy October from Thirteen Myna Birds! A NEW flock has arrived!

By Juliet Blood Pudding

Happy October from Thirteen Myna Birds! The first three creepy doll poems here are TEASERS from the poetry chapbook PEDIOPHOBIA by Daniel G. Snethen, coming soon (shortly before Halloween) from Blood Pudding Press!
After that, you get 13 other creepy, dark, disturbing, sad, oddly amusing, unsettling offerings from Eileen Murphy, Ariana D. Den Bleyker, U.S. Fowler, E. Martin Pedersen, John Grey, Nate Maxson, and MISH.
“Glazed glassy eyes ghoulishly staring from white bone porcelain heads – You dream of arms, legs, torsos, being tossed into an open pit – smoke pouring from the kitchen – a plastic ballerina spinning – Butterflies dissolve behind your eyes – those bright black eyes that untied my strings – Black plumed rooks pluck at green glassy doll eyes – the battered boxes of our hearts – inside a jewelry box – It happens again & again – I’m grabbing onto something live, wriggling – in a ragged tutu – blooming in the hollow of my throat – as the crow pecks out my left eye – I turn and flee from the cottonwoods of doll heads – But he always comes back the next time doesn’t he? – Dark human corpses piled high on doll infested hills – We put him back in the ground and hope for a good harvest – An explosion of red…”

Happy October! A NEW poem by Juliet Cook and j/j hastain is up at Rogue Agent today!

By Juliet Blood Pudding “Classify the child that comes out
as other than

what anyone previously thought. However,
your classification technique must not involve
a knife cutting into an unknown body in order
to collect extra terrestrial flesh”
from the poem “FOR CLASSIFICATION PURPOSES” by Juliet Cook and j/j hastain, at Rogue Agent Issue 55

A NEW Poetry Interview with Juliet Cook is up on Cultural Weekly! So are three poems!

By Juliet Blood Pudding Thank you very much to Eileen Murphy for conducting this Cultural Weekly Interview with Juliet Cook about poetry. One of the questions she asked was why dolls find their way into much of Cook’s poetry and here was part of the response:

“I feel like some people view or treat other people like dolls, in certain ways. Or maybe not specifically like dolls, but like un-meaningful, un-individualistic, largely emotionless, relatively heartless bodies that can just be broken into little pieces, thrown away, heaped in the trash, or tossed in a garbage barrel with a bunch of other quickly cut off doll heads.”
