Femenismo

Joanne Limburg

Even if you don't normally read poems, do give this collection a go. You'll find them very direct and easy to read but also funny and poignant. Expect contemporary life in the raw including some very moving poems about the death of a parent.

Extract


Dad died
and three months later
we bought Christmas out again,
an old, fake tree,
shedding its plastic needles
