Order My New Poetry Chapbook: "My Burlesque"

https://www.cristinaquerrer.com/booksCristina Querrer's latest poetry chapbook, "My Burlesque", is a dark collection of the macabre scenes into one's interior: of nostalgia, failed relationships, and soul-wrenching memories.ISBN 978-1-71662-879-5Pocket Book (4.25 x 6.875 in / 108 x 175 mm), 36 Pages, Black & White Standard, 60# (90 GSM) White Paper, Paperback, Glossy CoverSample poem:  THE BODY HE GAVE MEHe would have built
a case around it—the reasons 
why he would call me cunt
Oh, like no woman 
has heard the man 
that she loved
go there in that dark 
well of knives and daggers?
I would stand affront,
empty, speechless
on my linoleum floor.
I learn his language
and repeat it back to him. 
He scoffs.
Disappears for days.
The roots intertwine now 
beneath our feet 
that no matter the pull, 
the push, it's just useless 
thrashing about
because all I can 
remember that day
as I stood there frozen 
looking down at my body, 
speechless, watching it conform 
to those descriptions of me.

BrommelYou can’t explain to friends from home how the desert makes it better, but you try:Imagine a heat so dry that it presses down into the earth, releasing its scent so that it takes on the comforting smell of clay pots in your grandmother’s kitchen when you were a child, or your hideout under the evergreens where you used to sit for hours smelling only the dirt, the sap, the pine.

Imagine a smell that reminds you of the kitchen on holidays: sage, rosemary, and something you chase that is reminiscent of honey, but feels like love.

Some people still fight it. They call the he…
