“Mumblings of a Fool,” by Momus Najmi (A Book Review)

blood ink and roses blog

I’ve been following Momus Najmi on Twitter and Instagram for some time now, and I’ve found his unique and insightful posts deeply refreshing in a sea of social media sameness. Najmi’s voice on social media is identical to his voice in Mumblings of a Fool: honest, fearless, wise, and unrelenting. He’s that person who speaks …

domestic violence

  Your bones dug into my neck Like some rusted-over shovel, My face shoved into a soggy pillow, Thanks for the muzzle. You became afraid Whenever you heard those “snaps”, “Crackles”, And “pops”, Not because you loved me, But because you feared the cops.

“Nefelibata,” by Athena Belle-Fairplay (A Book Review)

book blog

I don’t usually write book reviews; as a matter of fact, this is only the second one I’ve ever posted on this blog. My [unintentional] “celibacy” in regards to not blogging about other authors’ books persisted for a long while without any glitches.  It’s not exactly like I was going out of my way to …

A poem from Sanghvi’s fifth book, Cerulean. Released: March 13th, 2020. Sometimes, I try on these words like jeans. I squeeze into them, or else squish them into my small, flat palms, as if it is they who will wear me instead. Alas! They almost never seem to fit, nor do they ever quite seem …
