The Threshold of Broken Waters, Paperback / softback Book

The Threshold of Broken Waters Paperback / softback


The Threshold of Broken Waters is a memoir in verse that highlights the life-changing influence of significantevents in which pregnancy and birthing are presented as metaphors for poetrywriting.

The book is based on the sublimation of the mnemonic traces that sustaingrowth and extends the birthing metaphor to the migration and water crises of our contemporary world. Momentum I rise into my breath and remarkA caterpillar's change into a monarchAs it inflates its diaphanous wings for heftAnd waits before it glides with the draft. Into my lungs' labyrinth my breath curlsTo become the voice that unfurlsInto a poem whose tears fortify my identity. To merge with the world's fury is insanity. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000}span.s1 {font-kerning: none}
