Two Poems in Please See Me

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 can read and listen to these two poems here.
