NEW from Blood Pudding Press! - Pigeons and Peace Doves by Matthew J. Hall - the second Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook of 2015!

June 2015 offers you the new "Pigeons and Peace Doves", the second Blood Pudding Press Contest Winning poetry chapbook of the year - and the first poetry chapbook by Matthew J. Hall.

It includes thirteen gorgeously written, emotionally rendering poems by Matthew J. Hall 
that are "representative of a...self-destructive struggle, an internal struggle".

Matthew J. Hall is an artist and writer living in Bristol, England. He is an avid reader, writer and reviewer of poetry and fiction and has been featured in some fine literary publications and websites including The Small Press Book Review, Literary Orphans, Rusty Truck and Hobo Camp Review. To read more from Matthew, visit his blog (www.screamingwithbrevity.com) where he frequently publishes reviews and other poetry and fiction related things.

Here are a few lines from one of the Pigeons poems, "This City is Sad and Angry", followed by a photo of the new chapbook.

You can procure a copy of these broken, lovely Pigeons for yourself at the Blood Pudding Press shop here - https://www.etsy.com/listing/236081428/new-pigeons-and-peace-doves-by-matthew-j?ref=shop_home_active_2

"the high risers are leaning in
and the tarmac pulls
and sadness wells and spills
in and from the crippled pigeon’s eyes

I think he wants to cry
but doesn’t know how
I'd like to make a lollipop-stick splint 
for his contorted leg"
