What People Are Saying About, CRY SWEAT BLEED WRITE
"The author transcribes all the eras of living and leaving onto the pages of this Davidic chapbook... In her poems, she has not just succeeded in birthing the record of her truth, but like a scientist of pain, a composer out of concrete, she has strung together these psalms, the pearls of survival. From these poems, readers acknowledge that they have cried. They feel the sweat. They even recall the smell of blood. But they acknowledge, too, that they write. This is war."
-Naomie Jean-Pierre, 2019 Push Cart Prize Nominee, Poetry
"I cried. I paused. I cried. I yearned
for... More pages. More poems. More
lines that evoked a feeling in me"
-Mark Travis Rivera, author of Drafts: An Imperfect Collection of Writing
"Wow absolutely speechless after
reading this book of poems...Do
yourself a favor and order this book of
poems- a whole world will form around
"Reading and Re-reading Kay Bell's
gorgeous book of poems"
