The first is Christopher DeWeese's Fireproof Swan, from Factory Hollow Press.
Chris' poems always deliver the goods. Here is a little pinch from inside Fireproof Swan:
"You've got to do what I say/when I'm on fire:/plane all growth/and keep retiring your colors./Rust burns a chemical silhouette/when I'm a machine,/a factory full of pans."
Yes, I'll take two, please.
This next chappie is from the wonderful Julia Cohen. Julia's chapbook is called For the H in Ghost, from Brave Men Press.
Julia recommeds you buy a copy for your mom, along with a snuggie. I second this suggestion. Julia will surely dominate your mind with her terrific poems and you will have a better holiday season because of it. I'll take a bundle of these stunning chappies, for the road.
