Drunk in a Bar in Qandahar

She had a wicked straight razor for a smile
and rocket fuel for blood.

Her soul was a mighty sunflower stalk
towering from a five-gallon bucket
in which local legend held something
had drowned before she was even born. Continua a leggere

The Ramingo’s Porch – “Somebody Has Lost The Sense of Blood” By Elena Bello

Elena 1

Somebody has lost the sense of blood

The meaning of flesh
Of the guts
Of the organic
Of which we are made.

We come to the world
Already hearing cries of pain.
We open our eyes to the light
while we are wrapped in blood. Continua a leggere

The Ramingo’s Porch – “desire’s dance” and “galactic serenity” by Eliana Vanessa

Ramingo Unknown Author's Immage

desire’s dance

lips of fallen innocence,
in cosmic repetition,
sound a wicked lover’s name,

of my womanhood

never to mingle in vain,
that we should honor the flame
all the same— Continua a leggere

A Review of Minky Woodcock, The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini and RAMINGO! With Her Mesmerizing Adventures

Minky Woodcock Issue #1 Cover D

I had the honour and pleasure to read Minky Woodcock, the comic series by Cynthia Von Buhler published by Hard Case Crime – Titan Comics, all in one night.

And, in the case of Cynthia Von Buhler’s work, it’s a real vortex of emotions, adventure and suspense. It’s all this and much more, if we consider also the quotes to great classics of investigative literature and pop culture. Continua a leggere

image1(3)

Lost In Translation ritorna con le poesie di Rob Plath. Qui i lettori italiani possono trovare le opere di un autore che ha saturato la scena letteraria underground con i propri scritti da 25 anni a questa parte. I suoi versi sono forti e asciutti, come il pugno di uno scheletro. Pungenti come l’aria del mattino presto d’inverno e freddi come il ghiaccio che si scioglie dentro ad un bicchiere di whiskey. Non ho altro da dire, semplicemente leggete e godetevi queste grandiose poesie come ho fatto io. Continua a leggere
