Modjaji Books and the Book Lounge are delighted to invite you to the launch of Jenna Mervis’s long awaited debut collection of poems, “Woman Unfolding”.
MORE ABOUT THE POEMS:
There are degrees of loss.
Mostly the loss of oneself in another:
myself in you.
I catch myself
for the next skin.
From ‘Shedding Skin’
These are poems of unfolding. A brain in limbo; a mother’s warnings, unheeded; the diving and swimming in life; fiancés who evolve into husbands; a child not yet conceived; poems birthed so that the reader follows the evolution of a word into something tangible, erect, alive.
