#amreading: Bronwyn Lovell

Instars

You will wear several skins
and outgrow all of them.
You’ll sense the pull of
tightness before

the fabric splits.

So leave them behind you
like plastic wrappers,
or human dresses
discarded in the rain.

Feel the relief
of each release,
the freedom
to expand again.

Self met the Australian poet Bronwyn Lovell during a 2015 stay at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig.

A few weeks ago, Irish visual artist Jacinta O’Reilly gifted self with a copy of Bronwyn’s chapbook, Chrysalis.

The poem above is from the chapbook.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
