  • DESCRIPTION

    'I offer my eyes that you may see

    when will you weary of profanity
    and recognise breath within bark

    pulse within stone

    the anther's fire?'

     

    The Anther's Fire is a stark and powerful new poem by Autumn Richardson, and the first in a new series of beautiful threadsewn pamphlets from Corbel Stone Press. Continuing her exploration of metempsychosis begun in Ajar To The Night, the poem is a meditation on the endless return of the soul to the sensate and sentient world — its journey through constellations, oceans, roots, flowers and 'the path of fires'.
