From Revolutionary Lips
Are you ready for something revolutionary?
Are you ready to dance with desire?
Then lean in close, my love.
Lean in close….
Listen to the Foreword here…
Bold, brave and beautiful, these poems are not for the faint of heart. Diving deep into the mystery, let From Revolutionary Lips take you on a journey of one woman’s becoming – and feel your own journey reflected back. Meet Lilith and Salome and Pandora – feel their desire, dance with their madness and free their voices – and in so doing free your own. Taboo-busting and truth-spilling, these poems will unlock the doors and lift the latches as, together, we find a way to come back home – home to our hearts.
“This collection carries me, deep into the intimate spaces of my own psyche, while knowing I am journeying into yours. I forget whose words they are. And… I feel an organic progression in the order. I keep reading because I can feel that there is an alchemy to fulfilling the whole cycle.” ~ Kathleen Prophet
“It opened me up and turned all that was inside out to the surface. Tender and raw. And then I settled like that, receiving. And then without realising it I was at the end and back in my own flesh, seemingly back in the form I was at the beginning, but perhaps with everything not quite as it was on the inside.” ~ Julie Gibbons
“Thank you, for no longer covering it up, covering it up, covering it up. Thank you for sharing the dark beauty of the heart. Thank you for letting us see the pool. Thank you for releasing the cork from the bottle neck. Thank you for the scabby places. Thank you for unlearning silence. Thank you for sending me back home, after having offered me a whiskey, water, tea and malbec as well as a hug…no namby-pamby limp hug, but a heart-to-heart bone-crusher, to face the mirror that simply cannotwillnot lie.” ~ Tanya Geisler
From Revolutionary Lips – the first Red Thread Voices publication from Amy Palko…
Amy Palko is the creatrix of Red Thread Voices – a publishing house that aims to offer a home to the voice of exiled feminine, She is also a goddess guide, poet, photographer and lecturer whose work has been featured internationally. She lives in Edinburgh, Scotland with her husband and three teenage children, in their home that overlooks the deep harbour, and the wide mouth of the River Forth as it opens up to swallow the cold waters of the North Sea.
From Revolutionary Lips is for mature readers due to content, language and themes. If you are uncomfortable with a woman speaking to her desire, her descent, her devotion and her darkness, then From Revolutionary Lips is probably not for you. Here at Red Thread Voices, we are devoted to amplifying the wild woman’s howl. Consequently, these are not pretty poems. Although many find them beautiful. And they’re not all sweetness and light. Although I suspect you’ll find them illuminating. What they are is juicy, raw, and honest. And they don’t speak for anyone’s experience other than the author’s own.
