New Poetry Interview
A new chapbook/collaborative interview of Juliet Cook and Robert Cole, conducted by Laura Madeline Wiseman:
"I wanted to start a collaboration with Juliet to explore the aspects of life that I have been afraid to confront. I wanted to scare myself, really. It became apparent pretty fast that our combined style of writing was doing just that."
"...since as an individual writer I seem to use similar content and even similar words a lot, I really enjoyed receiving lines that included words that don’t usually pop out of my poetry brain (like scrimshaw and sultans and puppies) and integrating that stuff into the same forum as my kind of words (like egg cups and tentacles and a blow torch) and probably creating new kinds of descriptions for both of us."

“…All mangy and probably diseased.
All frothing at the mouths at the taste of her rag-
a-muffin rumpus room. Punch her in the mouth;
say you get carried away because her spit out beads,
the rank smell of her pelt. Say something unnatural
pushed you. What oozed out was the filling in a cheap
dessert product ruined with broken teeth…”
