Insides Out

Freya Pickard’s new poetry book Insides, a journey through cancer, surgery and chemotherapy, was released today. I have been reading and enjoying Insides. I like the way it feels positive and determined, even humorous, in the face of a pretty awful experience. It even inspired some haiku that I’d like to share:

Cover of Insides by Freya Pickard

surgical jigsaw
the piece that did not belong
a piece missing now

steel bearing men came
to cut a woman apart
a dragon was born

free from the moon she
worships sun and seasoning
in destruction’s wake

little briar rose
have you forgotten the kiss
that once awoke you?
