Little Mother by Jennifer Boire

Little Mother is a book of poems that reads like a novel. Here are women’s stories, poems that touch the light and dark side of mothering, a pregnancy journal that recounts the joy and discomfort of having a watermelon belly soon-to-be-baby. Demeter, Madonna or Kali, the “woman with too many poems in her hair/can never get enough blue sky”. The poem “Purdah” from the book is recorded on the mini-CD Holding the Song.
