Where My Birthmark Dances

Here’s a Christmas present from my daughter. My sweet sixteen-year-old made the following video of me reading one my poems- Where My Birthmark Dances.  This poem is inspired by the many women who are forced, due to dire economic conditions, to leave their children and home countries and seek work abroad.

Now, if this title alone doesn’t whet your appetite or the blurb above, I don’t know what will.
