Since 2009, Carcinogenic Poetry has endeavored to present as many voices from the literary independent and underground from both new and established. Carcinogenic Poetry is not a poetry blog about cancer. It is a poetry blog about passion and truth. We are open to all types of verse, as long as it contains these two qualities. At Carcinogenic Poetry we believe THE TRUTH IS TO LIES LIKE CANCER, and we are looking for the poetry that is the vehicle of truth for that poet and their work. Sometimes that truth is beautiful. Sometimes that truth is bleak. The aim of Carcinogenic Poetry is to capture the full-range of tones by which these truths are delivered.
