BLUE JAY SLAYER whispers and shouts at us but never tells us what to think. It is dark at times, yes, but not what you'd expect: playful sometimes, angry sometimes, reticent when necessary. It's brimming with curses and gifts. More
"Poems that will tickle and irritate your brain served alongside artwork that will soothe and delight it." -- Alice Bag, singer, musician, educator, feminist and author of the memoir, Violence Girl: East L. A. Rage to Hollywood Stage, A Chicana Punk Story
"BLUE JAY SLAYER was a pleasure for me to read and visually take in. The drawings are bold, brazen, hauntingly beautiful and tragic at times. I found the poetry to be thought provoking and heavy with textured wordplay...traveling far, painting a picture all on their own." -- Dave Lombardo, drum god and co-founding member of Slayer
"Human nature and desire in its truest, purest form. These poems and illustrations invite us to 'take the light / from delight and make it obvious' which I'm all to happy to do when the work is this damn good" -- Gary Jackson, poet and author of Missing You, Metropolis
Poems and Art byMatt Hart&Ken Henson $16.66$15.99 + S&H | 7 x 10 | 82 pages | paperback
Versus The Rabbit Punch Defense - Nick Barrows | Journeyman's Lament - Mark Flanigan
"The combination of the two marks a prodding of humanity and the human psyche that is sometimes dark, sometimes ethereal and sometimes humorous."
"The text, featuring the potent voices of Mark Flanigan and Nick Barrow, marks a dark, scathing, humorous and insightful form of poetic storytelling that becomes even more expressive via live performances." -- Cincinnati CityBeat
