Now available from Cajun Mutt Press, Where Hot Rods Ride by Mendes Biondo!

From the opening poem, A Crow On A High Voltage Cable, to the closing poem, Witness Of The Wine, this Hot Rod will take you on a wild ride!


Excerpt from the blurb, written by Mark Blickley

“For readers whose travel destinations do not include raw sex, masturbation, and unfettered erotic passion, please do not step into Biondo’s hot rod, a warning that I suspect should be issued not only to lovers of poetry but also to Mendes’ lovers. If sacred salacious journeys do not deter you, then buckle yourself in and peel off with tires smoking into Where Hot Rods Ride.”

by John Brantingham

What struck me first about Mendes Biondo’s Spaghetti and Meatballs: Poems for Hot Organ was how aggressive the sexuality of this new collection is. I wasn’t offended or bothered in any way by it, but raw physicality runs through the book. This sexuality, however, is not what I was left with after having read the English translations of Biondo’s Italian poetry. What I came back to was a new vision of the universal feeling of despair and loneliness we all feel, and the antidotes that he offers to that despair.

Boxing With Life on Drinkers Only

The Mendes Speakeasy


Boxing With Life

the dear ol’ bukowski was right
stay down
let things go
drink a sip of your own blood

the dude with oiled muscles beat shit out of you
the dude with the red gloves is called life from the folk
that fucking folk claiming his name
it’s life man
it’s an hard motherfucker to face
