DARK PURPLE INTERSECTIONS (inside my Black Doll Head Irises) by Juliet Cook is a new 2019 poetry chapbook, published by Blood Pudding Press for the Dusie Kollektiv 9.

Cook was involved with the Dusie Kollektiv's 3, 4, and 5 and is delighted to be involved again. The Dusie Kollektiv 9 is a Tribute to Marthe Reed.

Sometime in May 2019, the Dusie Kollektiv will be publishing free online PDF files of the various member's chapbooks, but Cook also created this print version of her chapbook and will be mailing copies to other Dusie members in May.

For those who are not involved with Dusie and would like a hand-designed print copy of this chapbook, here it is.

The chapbook contains 30+ pages of interconnected/intersected poems, with content based on wanting to escape control and the ongoing dying of love. It could possibly be perceived as a negative confessional with glimmers of cracked, broken doll parts designed into new doll parts so they can keep living their own way, even if their way changes.

The chapbook is hand-designed and hand-bound, with various different color covers available, with or without insect or worm stickers. The colors and variations are too many to name, but if you have a particular preference for your chapbook's cover, please let me know in the Notes section. The color cover variations are mostly light tan variations, light mauve variations, and light grey variations. They can have worm stickers added, insect stickers added, both, or no stickers at all. Any specific preferences or questions, let me know in the Notes.

As a small sample, here is the beginning of the first poem within the collection:


"Maybe you didn't want to bloom where you were planted.

Maybe you wanted to escape from where you were planted,
create your own individual space that doesn't leave you
stuck in the same position,
nailed into the same cross-shaped ground.

And so from the ground up and down, you elongate
into different circle shapes. You expand and grow
your own fairy tale pie filled with maggots
that will choke to death or drown in between
the red filling unless they learn to fly."
