I’ve followed literary journals with a medical / health focus right from the start and have always loved the work shared in Please See Me. I was thrilled to have not just one, but two poems selected for issue #10, with its focus on women’s health.
Issue #10 is filled with some very powerful work – fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art – and it’s an honour to have “The Art of Distraction” and “Mother’s Heart as Incandescent Lightbulb” included, both in print and audio (I haven’t recorded a lot of my poetry, but it’s becoming more comfortable).
The funny thing about “The Art of Distraction”, which I was inspired to write after watching the beautiful documentary My Octopus Teacher, is that it could easily be titled “Please Don’t See Me”.

You are incredible, running out of words! I enjoyed reading and listening to you say them.
Thank you, love Mum
It’s incredibly sweet of you to take the time to read and listen — thank you!!
These two poems together made me weep. Thank you for writing about the sadness, beauty, and dichotomies of life in such a powerful and beautiful way.
Oh wow, that’s just wonderful feedback. You are such a sensitive reader and I’m grateful.
