Let It Stick


Cocklebur Press’ll be your new favorite spot for poetry.

We’ll put out four books a year.

They’ll stick to ya. You won’t be able to shake ’em. You won’t want to.

Just what is a “cocklebur” you ask?

Let’s do what all adults do: take a little gander on Wikipedia.

What did we learn?

Cockleburs are invasive. They tend to spread prolifically. The leaves are spirally arranged–down the rabbit hole we go, Alice–with deeply toothed margins.

That’s right, kiddos. These books got teeth. They bite. But don’t worry. You’ll like it.

They’ll have you spiraling. They’ll take you places. It may not always be the places you wanted to go to but, hey, you’re welcome. Consider it a favor. Pass it along. Let one of our little Cocklebur seeds get stuck on another (and another and another and another–oh, hi there, Alice!)
