"Dear Bees Knees Friends,
This summer I would like to put more poetry in motion.
I am accepting submissions for poems and visual art to be published on car magnets. (That’s right, car magnets.)
These magnets will be place all over the Southern…"
Books I've written, anthologies I've contributed to, and any scripts or plays I've authored:
Nicelle Davis now resides in Lancaster, California, with her son J.J. Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Beloit Poetry Journal, ML Press, The New York Quarterly, Offending Adam, PANK, SLAB Magazine, Two Review, and others. Her book, Circe is scheduled to be released in Fall of 2011 from Lowbrow Press and Becoming Judas, is from Red Hen Press in 2013. You can read her e-chapbooks at Gold Wake Press and Whale Sound.
Nicelle, enjoyed your poems over at the Moulin Review, especially the line from "Poison Control and the Old Neigborhood:" "Girl, I wear on the outside what love will somedy do to your insides..." powerful imagery there. With our son it was once blue nailpolish...just remember my husband running up to the house with him, those blue glittery teeth....
DId I ever get back to you? I had some health issues and haven't been checking She Writes for ages. Anyway, glad you liked the sample poems from The Moon Makes Its Own Plea, and now I will check out The Bees Knees!
Now, that just sound off-color doesn't it? LOL. Thanks for sharing. I really like the image and word concept you are using in your poetry! The poem I *stole* cough cough (but gave credit to the webpage) is really great.
Will have to do a feature on your writing and process...because I totally want to do a poem in "Davis" style.
OOps that's Nancy's website. I was just clicking away and randomly dropped there mistakenly thinking it was you. Saw your blog too...thought what you had to say about grammar was very apt. I SO can relate.
You've a lovely website, I liked what you had to say about writing--
For as long as I can remember, I have longed to live in a world where everyone thrives—where lives have dignity, dreams count, and stories matter. The possibility of this seems to fade with each passing 21st century day. So I turn to words: to connect dots, to bear witness, to celebrate and to lament.
thanks so much for reading The Painter's Wife, and for letting me know how it moved you...a gift to have another pov.
I very much enjoyed your review over at Pank--and what a great list(by the poet you reviewed there) of ways to think naming/misnaming God: (satellite, candy, pedestal, grappler, guru, etc.) I have always loved the form of collage, and I think poetry really lends itself to collage. Will be looking forward to seeing what you do next.
