The Poem as Portrait
The early bird rate is expiring soon for Karen's "The Poem as Portrait" course with The Rooster Moans Poetry Cooperative.
If you share Karen's fascination with the potential for poems as portraits, and might like to explore this in your own work, then click here for more details:
out of the greenhouse,
past the bulbs, on your bicycle,
and then rowing
on the IJsselmeer.
A work of post-colonial art,
dreamt up by trade winds,
conceived by jet engine,
root-stock spliced from two continents
in a third -
you are your very own,
sitting in the prow,
brown legs drawn up,
talking office talk
in perfect mid-atlantic.
