Reading ‘ø’for Carcanet YouTube Channel

Check out the Carcanet YouTube Channel. Carcanet and PN Review poets including Joe Carrick-Varty and Stav Poleg are filmed reading their poems adding an extra layer to the words on the page. I was filmed in the summer reading my poem ‘ø’, a tribute to my beautiful Danish mother who passed away ten years ago this summer. Miss her voice and sad I didn’t learn Danish. She wanted to ‘not make her husband feel left out.’ If you can speak another language and you have a child, speak to them in that language and let the tongue flourish. Your language is your politics and your identity. Guard it.
