As this was the last book from Rufous Press it is especially rewarding that it is the best one. Editing takes way too much time. We have many other commitments. We want to dedicate our limited spare time to our own writing and other things.
Thanks to all the wonderful contributors and readers of Rufous Press/Rufous Salon!

“The poetry and prose in Lush span an arc of joy--rough and delicate, lasting and immediate.” -Kathleen Maher
“Lush is an exquisite collection, brimming with the palatial richness of summer’s luster. Like watching August light reveal the veins in shady leaves, the pieces in Lush remind us that this season of warmth is also meta-palace of memory where the scent of clover can unveil a forgotten moment or shadows on water can stir a desire long hidden within. Once again, Rufous Press has produced a thoughtful and exciting compilation of new voices.” -Megan Duffy, Editor of The Meadowland Review
“A diverse collection of contemporary poetry and prose from around the globe, Lush is a compact volume of emotive, fluid, and genuine modern day verse. This joyful selection of warm weather meanderings will speak to even the most casual consumer of poetic wordplay.” -A.g. Synclair, Editor & Publisher of The Montucky Review

smell of wet bark
oxidised iron in the soil
frost stiffened them
came from ceilings
abandoned barleycorn fields
coloured dew in woodland junctions
hoarfrost biting the outer skin
smell of frozen steam in his nose
the effervescing humours
reservoir entrances frozen over
icy turmoil waiting for spring
waterlogged trees dialogue
in low key frequency

our little bastard,
he steals pillows
his large mass
of fat floats
with his breaths
on my cheekbones
his snores and
purring wheezes keep us
awake at night,
his one eye
glowing in the
of television snow
