The Knowledge Weapon by Annette C. Boehm

Annette C. Boehm won the Bare Fiction Debut Poetry Collection Competition 2015, as judged by award winning poet Andrew McMillan, and I’m very pleased to say that you can now order her prize-winning collection The Knowledge Weapon right here on our online store.

“Open the book on any page and try not to be impressed by the command of language, the dynamism of image, the thrill of subjects which are on offer.”

Andrew McMillan

“In Annette C. Boehm’s stunning The Knowledge Weapon, false knowledge is inflicted—but quickly finds itself shredded by its own sword. This fierce debut collection explores our baroque relations with one another and with a savaged ecology. Can a book be both ominous and playful, both freeing and disturbing? Read this and know.”
Angela Ball, Professor of English at The University of Southern Mississippi

Sample: The Knowledge Weapon by Annette C. Boehm

My Boy Sherlock

The boy with the puppy-dog eyes tells me
he knows what’s behind the wall-papered door
our grandmother always keeps locked.
It’s where she’s hidden the body, it’s where
our granddad is. She’s stored him standing
upright in his Sunday suit, and hidden the key.
Palm-sized, dusty sunflowers cover the cracks
but grubby fingers have peeled
the paper off the lock to look. It’s just dark.
When the heavy hoover is running, the air
vibrates bare ribs, shuffles toe bones in the
black leather shoes. Bats live in that chest.
What we need, the boy says, is a skeleton key.

Annette C. Boehm, from her forthcoming debut collection ‘The Knowledge Weapon’.
