Poem of the Day
My body has become the body of the festival:Taken from 'New Poetries II'...
The vaginas on shrines reduce me to the facts of life.
And my wedding vows to you are this festival's promises -
A roaring in the ears, narrow entrances,
And the two of us hauled into life's own procession
Of mother after mother after mother.
We thank the Arts Council England for their support and assistance in this interactive Project.
