Perfume&Cigs-med

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.

Perfume & Cigarettes release date Friday 9/25!

The new book of poetry from Six Ft. Swells: Perfume & Cigarettes by Madeline Levy will be available this Friday 9/25/15 through this website and amazon.com, so start saving your pennies, collecting cans, or selling plasma to get your copy. Advanced praise for Perfume & Cigarettes:

Madeline Levy has an uncanny talent for revealing the raw and sometimes uncomfortable truths in life and love. She’s not afraid to tell us what she likes, what she wants in a relationship, and what she definitely doesn’t want, which is to become another “wordless warrior/waving a hand for the check before dessert.” We can all learn from this poet–to live boldly, sharing our light, ever cautious of the “hand/closing the lid.” –—Shawn Aveningo, Poet, Editor, Publisher, The Poetry Box®
