Enter Here: poems



The latest collection of poems by award-winning author and photographer Alexis Rhone Fancher. "Lust, longing, urban noir, and the emotional ravages and physical heat that colliding souls can't help making, are all artfully packed into these lyrical narratives by a poet who refuses to hold back" (Michelle Bitting, poet and author of The Couple Who Fell to Earth).

"Mixing heartbreak and hilarity, these poems deliver an emotional wallop with the ease of a woman rolling down her nylons" (Pam Ward, author of Want Some Get Some and Bad Girls Burn Slow).

"Alexis Rhone Fancher is not merely a detailed chronicler of our socio-physical interactions--she is by far the most exciting, articulate, and convincing storyteller in contemporary verse" (Gerald Locklin, poet and fiction author of 100+ books).

"Any self-styled critic who characterizes Alexis Rhone Fancher's written work as only sexy stanzas would be making an egregious mistake. Far more accurate to portray her poetry as grainy, gritty, noir images by a female version of Henry Miller's bitter observation of the dirty word 'relationships, ' or Georges Bataille's eccentric business of the creative woman at times catering to the psycho-sado fantasies of her lover, or Stephen Schneck's nightmare world of sensual dreams, but with an added dose of infectious humor" (Michael C. Ford, music journalist, playwright, Grammy-nominated spoken-word artist, and Pulitzer Prize-nominated poet).

"I write about women like me, women who own their sexuality and take responsibility for their choices. It may seem I'm writing about sex, but really, I'm writing about power. Who has it. How to get it. How to wield it. How to keep it" (from "Featured Fem" Alexis Rhone Fancher, interviewed by The Fem literary magazine, 17 June 2016).

Her poems appear in more than 100 literary magazines, journals, and anthologies, including The Best American Poetry 2016, Wide Awake: Poets of Los Angeles and Beyond, Rattle, The MacGuffin, Slipstream, Hobart, Cleaver Magazine, Poetry East, Fjords Review, Rust + Moth, Pirene's Fountain, and Askew; and her photographs have been published worldwide, including spreads in River Styx, Heart Online, and Rogue Agent, and on the covers of Heyday Magazine, Chiron Review, Witness, and The Mas Tequila Review. Her writing has been nominated multiple times for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net. A lifelong Angeleno, Alexis is poetry editor of Cultural Weekly, where she also publishes a monthly photo-essay, "The Poet's Eye," about her on-going love affair with Los Angeles. From the S-curves of Topanga and the sprawling beaches of the Westside, to the stunning views of downtown L.A. from her 8th-floor loft studio, her beloved city can be construed as another character in her work.
