Puma Perl's first feature-length collection of poetry, "knuckle tattoos"
Cost is $12 plus $3 shipping from me, $12 free postage from erbacce.
Her first chapbook, Belinda and Her Friends, was awarded the erbacce press poetry prize of 2008, beating out over 1400 entries. The prize was a full length collection, "knuckle tattoos." She titled it knuckle tattoos because, she says, "once you have willingly branded yourself in public places there is no turning around. Once it is said, it cannot be unsaid. As the title pome states, 'fisted letters don't hide meanings entwined in lies and butterflies.'"
