Book Review of Let it Bleed by Nicole I Nesca (review by Ivor Daniel)

Screamin' Skull Press – Renegade Prose and Poetry

Let it Bleed by Nicole I. Nesca (Screaming Skull Press) reviewed by Ivor Daniel.

Bleeding  Authentic  Writing    Let it Bleed captures the feel of when you are young and need to run away from home    But you still want to be found

Hemorrhaging in the shower    The unwanted neon intimacy of medical examinations    Morphine sleep     Wake     Hemingway saying writing is like bleeding

Swerving between prose & poetry    The music of the times coming up on the radio then gone/past/static/interference   

     Interference     Predators   

         Road map of America      sticky separating from parents / founders  

Sticky Fingers    Sticky   long – distance   bus    rides               to look for America

Loving / Hating / Loving / Turning Into

         Your Parents

Elusive living up to Papa’s (and Hemingway’s) expectations

It all goes by so fast/life/a crystal/blur/outside the windscreen

And soon we are at now                       ‘solving the world’s crisis one ‘like’ at a time’

                   A tale of love and survival     (What else is there?)    

                  We aspire to humanity     Survive like emotional sardines   

                             It’s like a film    It’s like heroism    

            Not the masculine old  ‘I may be gone for some time’ heroism  

          The other sort        Writing that bleeds

Let it flow   

Nicole Nesca  –  you may be here for some time
