A long-awaited new chapbook in our handmade series! New poems by Ginger Ko.

We're still working out the details and cover design, but this limited-edition book will be laser-printed on cream stock and hand sewn with natural twine into kraft brown cardstock covers, stamped with metallic gold, etc.

If you have a current Bloof subscription (2016 or 2017), this chapbook is already included.

*We will make between 100 and 200 of these, TBD based on orders and materials, and they tend to go quickly.

See the images for some cover mockups. Final design TK soon!


I can’t make
anything from me,
anything not
already dead. I look
to my family
but none of them
are like me. They
have led up to me.
What do we do
when they no longer
need the mannequin
casings for their
clever matrices?
I asked a keeper
and they became
so angry that they
led me to the edge
of the dolphin tank,
pointed at the warders
who must masturbate
the males, massaging
pink extensions
as the dolphins float
belly up against
the poolside. When
your own body
is meaningless, when
you sit at home
on soft furniture
because your
automaton sits
at work every hour
of the day, suddenly
you begin to love
all the bodies.
