New spoken word poem on Baby Teeth Journal

I have a new spoken word poem published on Baby Teeth Journal!

‘Don’t feed’ was inspired by a real life experience of feeding Schmackos to a magpie, then suddenly finding myself surrounded by many feathered Schmacko enthusiasts! At the time my city, was about to enter a lockdown and I remember wondering what would happen if, in our absence, these birds decided to take over? The result was this weird, spooky poem.

Listen to/read ‘Don’t feed’ on the Baby Teeth Journal website.

A photo of a visual poem incorporating shells, polaroid photos and white sticker labels on a rainbow tie-dye background. The text of the poem reads: 'clear skies' for M seashells picked & palmed swelling lips sunkissed like glinting waves i cup conch between fingers & drink you in today we are sunbeams

New visual poems

Last month I had two new visual poems published! I’ve been exploring what poetry means to me and how I can best express that, including playing with other art forms and pushing my own boundaries.

I was so proud to have my blackout poem ‘flourish, viola’ published at Honey & Lime Lit.

And my visual poem ‘clear skies’, which incorporates seashells, polaroid photos and printed labels, appeared in Baby Teeth Journal.
