Drawing your attention to a forthcoming chapbook publication:
Potential by Isabelle Kenyon
Isabelle is not only a published poet. She is also a freelance editor (she once did a great job for me), a book marketing consultant and Managing Director of Fly on the Wall Press. Some links below.
Published as part of the much-loved Ghost City Press summer series, Isabelle Kenyon's micro chapbook is a brave and prickly collection which touches on a new relationship, the-thing-between-her-legs and sexual assault. Light in tone, it is an exploration of the wonderful and the horrible things which can occur alongside love.
Here's a sample poem:
For five days I pretend the key is mine
I take friends to your flat for coffee;
I make breakfast and eat at your desk.
For five days I leave hair on all surfaces available to me,
like glitter you cannot erase them;
like snakes they spool around your fingers.
For five days I tolerate all your rules of cooking,
unnecessary appliances, over – salted water and diluted soaps –
I itch to make your mess mine; your space mine.
