Twelve Trees

The plumes of the avocado are sick.
Dad cuts roses with a hatchet.
In hell, there's nothing but crocodiles
and fathers. In Mexico, the Devil is handsome
and smiles in all his photographs. He has one wife,
two daughters, three sons, but no mother.
He rakes leaves then fixes umbrellas,
occasionally throws back his head and sings. 
from Tracing the Horse (Boa Editions)

2020 Annual Report

The Perugia Press Board has created our 2020 Annual Report. We are proud of, and energized by, the work we were able to accomplish during a challenging year, and we did it with the help of our poetry community of supporters, volunteers, readers, poets, and friends of Perugia Press. You are part of that circle. Read our 2020 Annual Report for a recap of our new initiatives and to learn how we've been continuing our mission to publish and promote emerging women-identifying poets and their work.
