Folded Into Your Midwestern Thunderstorm

Kristen Orser, one of the freshest and most colorful poets going today, just released a new chapbook from Greying Ghost Press, Folded Into Your Midwestern Thunderstorm. She’s got a way of doing surrealism and broken language like I’ve never heard before. Definitely look into this here.

“The midwest can be a lonely space to crawl. Heaps of junctions and front roads bordering corn but nobody else is on the road this afternoon. Folded Into Your Midwestern Thunderstorm is a thunder-slap meant for your cheek. There is a ferocity and a bite to these poems as ripe as the ‘Bells, bells, bells / resembling / the ferocity of print ribbon. Double / if you are the responder / my words gut.’ Kristen Orser shall reckon!”

You can also read a couple of Kristen’s chapbooks for free – Wilted Things and Winter, Another Wall. Don’t sleep on this dopeness!
