Rogues and Roses – Poems on love affairs (Potcake Chapbook)

9781910578889_50%Lovers! What’s not to love about them?
Head into the ambiguities of love affairs and enjoy these poems by a dozen of the finest formal poets writing today. There may even be an answer to the question “What is love?” Or maybe not…

The “Potcake Chapbook” series is named for the dogs of the Bahamas and the Caribbean – strays that live off the burnt scrapings of cooking pots. The poems in the series are a mixed bunch – but the potcake of our logo wears a bow tie to show that he and all the poems are formal. These poems are memorable in part because they rhyme and scan, as all truly memorable poetry does. We subscribe to the use of form, no matter how formless the times in which we live.
