New book of poems is in the making...
I'm gathering pieces from the time of pregnancy onward so it will be all motherhood-inspired.
This is one of my latest poems.. It's called 'Who Will Pay For My Work' or 'The Multitasker's Blues' ; )
Who will pay for my work?
I don’t mean paying for my many night hours
spent at birthing new arts
I don’t mean paying like during the
– time when a woman is designed to be
with child and no distractions anyway –
I mean paying for my
that I do
and that is sometimes being called
an ‘easy way out’
or a ‘comfort zone’
Who will pay?
For those 18-hour-long days
always on duty
with weight-lifting and much of it
often in the heat
