Poetry Film: Water Birth

It’s been wonderful working with the Adrian Brinkerhoff Poetry Foundation and Poet in the City on a new film of my poem, “Water Birth.”

The poem is about the babies born in the Mediterranean Sea, many of them in treacherous conditions or on rescue boats. The film is out now, directed Matthew Thompson:

This poem was first published in The London Magazine, and republished as the opening poem of my new poetry collection, These Mothers of Gods (Fly on the Wall Press, 2021).
