Did you know that Jeanine Deibel’s In the Grave is out NOW?

Image

 

Boys boys boys, in the grave and in each other’s faces, pummeling and beating and traversing the land like they once owned it and mean to take it back with bloody fists or at least pretend to, or at least leave it scarred up and sweaty for the meek to inherit.

excerpt:

“After beating those boys after punching their faces with bats until the idea of face became blurry after huffing clouds against the sky doubled over we debated whether to drag them out of sight or bury our boots between slats of rib taking turns until we were forced to stop from the coughing to catch our breath and leave. We would come back for them Ty told me we would clean up our mess but that rarely happened.”

Purchase In the Grave here. Coming later this month: Carrie Hunter’s Inversion Twilight.

Subscription Winner + macey [triolets]

Teddy_Bear

Welcome to 2013, readers! Birds of Lace is ecstatic and maybe even wonderfully hysterical about our 2013 release schedule. Our first release of 2013 will be Seth Oelbaum‘s macey [triolets], for which there will be a pre-order page next week. Pre-orders will come with an emailed PDF from Oelbaum of a teddy bear lookbook that accompanies his texts. Here’s a sample poem from the chapbook:

dragging our holey shop bags on sunny sidewalks,
teddy and i are crazy for cure that reams.
crackers, creams, combs — mommy steams up for price drops.
dragging our holey shop bags on sunny sidewalks,
we ask sunny, “sunny, why are you a cock?”
if you get, a comb you’ll get for unclean mien.
dragging our holey shop bags on sunny sidewalks,
teddy and i are crazy for cure that reams.
