12 Poems - by Cee Williams (CC#21)

Crisis Chronicles Press just released Pennsylvania living legend Cee Williams' new chapbook, 12 Poems, on 14 April 2012.

"12 Poems by Cee Williams (Crisis Chronicles Press, 2012) is a walk through the rhythms, worries, and lusts of a sensitive mind. Just when you think Williams might be wallowing in the deeper questions of life and love, "Strippers and Spilled Beer" bubbles to the surface, followed by the equally delightful "STFU." Short but jalapeño-sweet, 12 Poems is a must- read!"
          —Dianne Borsenik (editor, NightBallet Press)

12 Poems is 20 pages, black ink on cream paper, printed in the author's beloved Erie, Pennsylvania, with cover and design by Cee himself.  It's also dirt cheap.  To get your copy, send $5 to Crisis Chronicles Press, 3431 George Avenue, Parma, Ohio 44134 USA.
