"Waiting for his uptown express, Herzog made a tour of the platform, looking at the mutilated posters - blacked-out teeth and scribbled whiskers, comical genitals like rockets, ridiculous copulations, slogans and exhortations. Moslems, the enemy is White. Hell with Goldwater, Jews! Spicks eat SHIT. Phone, I will go down on you if I like the sound of your voice. And by a clever cynic, If they smite you, turn the other face. Filth, quarrelsome madness, the prayers and wit of the crowd. Minor works of Death. Trans-descendence - that was the new fashionable term for it."

Cradle and Spoon Cover

    January 2023 release:

    The first publication attempt by Minor Works of Death Press:
    Kate Spencer's debut book of poetry:

    Cradle and Spoon

    With, at times, spiraling self-awareness, Spencer writes herself into a new mode: the post-confessional.
    Unable to ignore the context that burdens confessional poets like Lowell, Sexton, and Plath
    --the modernist trends they resisted, the psychoanalytic theory they embraced--Spencer leans into that
    context and learns her own. Meaning, she uses literary theory, philosophy, and psychoanalysis to form
    novel links between her personal stories of drug addiction and loss with historical realities and poetic trends.
    Spencer's brand of post-confessional poetry, then, lies at the intersection between
    what has been done and what can be done from within a self-imposed Kristevian feedback loop.
    We, at MWOD, think it's brilliant.
