Bone of My Bone by Nicole Rollender is now newly available, as of September 5 2015!

The third and final Contest Winning Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook of 2015 includes 16 poems focused on birth, death, the body in between, and what is divine.

What if you lose a life before it even comes out of you?

How is life combined with skin and bone and spine and marrow and femurs and skulls?

From cracking and contracting; from breaking down to floating away - will you sink, will you drown, will you rise up higher?

From torture and fear and numbness to in-depth internal connections between this life and the next.

Bone of My Bone will haunt you and taunt your thoughts in different directions.

Bone of My Bone will disturb you and urge you to consider what life is worth to you and what might happen next.

"Maybe this is just a form

of sleep. Your fingers curled around an oar.

We’d have to break metacarpals and phalanges

to separate your hand from the waves

and the stones. The sinking

under the moon, the overturn,

dirt still underneath nails. Your ceramic

tongue, your ruined eyes, three lost ribs."

from the poem "The Preparation of the Body"
