NEW in South Broadway Ghost Society - mental regurgitation!

My "mental regurgitation" appears at South Broadway Ghost Society today.
(Usually I write poetry, but this piece is more like a flash fiction/exaggerated fictional essay about hideous leeches.)

Poet Spotlight: Juliet Cook on dolls, body, and uncomfortable poetry

"Not too long after I had the manuscript completed, I then started to feel kind of weird about the collection, because I feel like it might be almost TOO confessional in a way that makes me seem really unappealing — not in terms of my poetry itself; but in terms of my negativity, my lifestyle choices, my relationship issues, my body-focused issues and related attributes — but that was what felt the need to come out in this collection, uncomfortable or not."
I have an Interview up today, focused on my poetry chapbook, "DARK PURPLE INTERSECTIONS (inside my Black Doll Head Irises)" and lots of other poetry stuff too.
Thank you very much to Andrea Blythe for including me in her Poet Spotlight!

At Plum Creek Park with Darryl, Sunday June 9th - Bones

These bones were stuck in a tree, almost up to the level of our heads. I think they look like deer bones, but not sure how they ended up in the tree.

Some thoughts on my Dark Purple Intersections (inside my Black Doll Head Irises)

"I also read Juliet Cooks new chapbook, Dark Purple Intersections (inside my Black Doll Head Irises), which uses beautiful dark imagery to provide a kind of coming of age narrative for adulthood. The narrator discovers more about herself through the progress of each poem and it’s lovely."
Andrea Blythe mentions her interpretation of my recent poetry chapbook, "Dark Purple Intersections (inside my Black Doll Head Irises)" among her Culture Consumption: May 2019. You can read more of her Culture Consumption here - https://www.andreablythe.com/2019/06/07/culture-consumption-may-2019/
Blythe also recently interviewed me about Dark Purple Intersections and poetry and that interview will be up tomorrow. 🖤
