"I was itchy for the desert and stillness and enough room to think through something that the last few months made impossible with its constant barrage of drama. But because time was allowed to unfold within its own dimensions and demands and because so much chaos was still all around, growing by the minute it seemed, pulling our attention at every turn, what else was there to do but find myself when I could, in quick breaks, simply on my couch, with Kimberly Alidio’s crystalline, : once teeth bones coral :, attuning to each cluster of words, each seemingly-effortless epiphany." These words are from Rebecca Stoddard's Small Press Roundup entry on : once teeth bones coral :. https://www.glbtrt.ala.org/reviews/column-seasons-of-pandemic-and-the-books-that-bore-witness-2020-small-press-roundup/

Review – : once teeth bones coral : by Kimberly Alidio

We are over the moon about this review of Kimberly Alidio's : once teeth bones coral : by Cecily Chen!

"Roland Barthes, in A Lover’s Discourse, writes that the utterance I-love-you is “extralexicographical,” that it is a “linguistic feint… too phatic to be a sentence.” Vibrant with a wanton, affective charge, I-love-you does not represent or mean anything –rather, it is a gust of eros that bursts forth, messy but warm and sensual. More than an illocutionary act, Barthes sees I-love-you as what he calls a proffering, through which desire is neither repressed nor recognized, but simply “released, as an orgasm.”[1]

Every word in : once teeth bones coral :, Kimberly Alidio’s new book of poetry from Belladonna*, is saturated with this extralexicographical intensity, calling attention to language’s sonic and somatic resonance when it becomes estranged from familiar linguistic contexts..."

🦋 2020 🦋 Check the link in our bio for special sale prices on all our publications from this year, as well as a special offer on Spring 2021 subscriptions. We don’t have to tell you this is a critical time for small presses and literary organizations. We need money, and if you have a little to part with, we’d love to send you these beautiful objects in return, a little archive of one of the infinite ways poetry sustained itself and us this year. All the money goes back into the work. We hope you’ll help us continue to hold this space for weird words and unbound notions. 🖤

General information

The mission of Belladonna* Series is to promote publication and literary community among women writers who are writing off-center work that is adventurous, multi-form, multicultural, multi-gendered, unpredictable, political & critical, formally innovative, hybrid & experimental, that reaches across the boundaries and binaries of literary genre and artistic fields, and that questions the gender binary. Ours is prose that is situational and poetry that is inter-subjective or performative or witnessing. Since our founding in 1999 as a reading and salon series at Bluestockings Bookstore, Belladonna has expanded to become, in addition to a literary series, a publisher of chaplets, chapbooks, and full-length books of poetry and multi-genre writing, serving women writers whose work has not yet reached a broad audience. We reorganized as a ten-person collaborative in 2010 and acquired 501(c)(3) non-profit status in 2011.
