Coming Soon to a Bookshop Near You

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”.


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.
