Newest Release from Six Ft. Swells!

September 2015

 

The poems in Perfume & Cigarettes by Madeline Levy come at you like Tom Waits driving a 1957 Cadillac onto the sleek asphalt of night, with only the red glow of taillights sending kisses on the road to everywhere. These poems take us places, somewhere between the proper and the profane, the dive bars and the five-star restaurants. These are poems with wicked grins and sharp edges that will leave a “tiny-sized cut in the back of your heart,” and make us believe that “apple pie & cyanide” are a good idea. Madeline Levy is a new and true voice in American poetry who leaves cigarette burns on our crooked wings, yet we still offer to buy her a new pack.

What readers are saying about The Girl Who Left You:

“The Girl Who Left You is an exquisite compilation of poems that that sing with swagger and are profound in their intimacy, that secret side that one shows in the privacy of moonlight and moments of calm before the storm.

–Allie Marini Batts, poet, author, You Might Curse Before You Bless

Amber Decker’s poetic voice is equally brave and illuminating…. [She] has the voice of a modern day Southern erotic poet. The reader can truly feel the hurt, the love and the skins of past flames burning on the page.

What readers are saying about Sucker’s Paradise:

Got this fantastic book of poetry today. I must say it couldn’t have arrived at a better time. With all the tears I’ve cried the past few days it was nice to laugh…. I’ll be rereading it later tonight with a nice glass of wine or a couple shots of rum, or maybe both. I too am a total sucker.”

–April Barlow, Oklahoma

“From poetry readings, to chapbooks, and now “Suckers Paradise,” Todd Cirillo has endeavored to make his poetry entertaining and humorous. Some of the poems in this collection are sure to get the reader laughing and possibly inspired. While others are sure to welcome the reader to reminisce on love lost and the transitivity of the lush life.
