Embers Flaring

John Biscello

Houses of a Crystal Muse, a poetic dialogue/collaboration between myself and Antoinette Nora Claypoole, will be released by Wild Embers Press next week. Also featuring images by Issa de Nicola and Anthony Distefano.  Wild Embers is offering free review copies.
Here is one of the poems from the book:
You,
true to your own scythe,
perpetrate with fierce love,
small necessary deaths,
you,
whispering sweet winged words
of encouragement to your reaper,
Hurry now, slowly,
and bless my broken softly,
bless every last ghost
through the numinous host
of reckon,
and watch me
rise,
this side of dream,
bountied
to the swell
of commonest prayers.
–J.B.
