Crown on Fire

14 Sep

I just polished off Mary Hamilton’s We Know What We Are, recently out on Rose Metal Press, and thought, “Dang. That was something else. That language was movement. The word “cuckoldry” comes to mind. I wish there was more.”

And then, Dogzplot drops 3 Hamilton bombs in their latest blast:

Having waited for the hour that was just after dinner, but before bed, Caroline braided her hair into two ropes falling over her shoulders and down to her ankles. She pushed spoons and forks into the braids so they would form a sailor’s ladder up the mast of her body to her skull where the blond hair pulled and the scalp turned red.

Go to there, and read that woah.
