  1. "I will raise another narrative
    and its antagonist is you"

    The poem is powerfully detailed through the extended metaphor of male and female bodies--
    Reading it was devastating, hearing it read in your resonant voice is a gift not to be missed.

    Thank you over and over for this web site!
