I decided to quickly publish a new poetry book.


The Wickedness Of Flowers by Josie Boyce | Make Your Own Book


I decided to hastily throw together a quick and dirty book of all my unpublished poetry that is maybe kinda sorta fit to print. Some pieces are much better than others. but it's an interesting roadmap of who I am/was as a poet, these last 25-30 years.

Last indolent Spinster Almost Daily Report from DOXA 2018

My last laconic lazy one take video chatting about the last couple days of the festival DOXA 2018

lonelier than never                  within  my neck     my throat       choke words             hard             suicidally so.
I am weary bleary and toothless.
In every mirror          I see hopeless                soft fat breath.   
And wetness.
Then      somehow thick white blood re:routes                   an                   other path into my chest    and the shit melts in   closely shaved rhythms                     or smiles                     songs slither    as delicate     as though    I had swallowed a rose.
