empress, by peter schwartz
If you haven't read Amy King's Kiss Me with the Mouth of Your Country yet, ohhhh you really must. It is also free (!) online, and besides having what has to be one of the best titles ever, has an achingly beautiful cover photograph. Here's what I said about the chapbook somewhere else: This is so good it broke my heart into a thousand little peices and I was hit so hard by some of these poems that I dropped some of those little peices along the way and am still trying to find them. Oh, that Amy King.
And bravo to Dusie Press for publishing, along with Amy's Kiss Me, all of the following chapbooks that you can read online or download at no charge. Among these authors are a few contributors to Siren and other riteous babes.
