When Red Blood Cells Leak
by Anne McMillen

For Unlikely 2.0's second chapbook, we are pleased to present the poetry of Anne McMillen, the old-school Unlikely Stories contributor formerly known as Annie M. Introducing When Red Blood Cells Leak, a beautifully ugly journey into hatred of the self, hatred of the other, and too much sex with both. Graced with Matt Sesow's oh-so-appropriate cover image of a woman with projectile nipples attacking a small bird, this chapbook will leave you with the uncomfortable, guilty feeling that all modern human interaction should.

To view When Red Blood Cells Leak, you'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader, a free download. When Red Blood Cells Leak is formatted to be seven inches wide and 8.5 inches high. In order to print it out as a booklet, you will need to use legal-sized (8.5"x14") paper.
