Powerful poem.
Attracta Fahy
01:06:26
Fabulous poem! Beautiful reading, I was travelling visually with it. ‘In another town the air appears to be dyed red’ ‘ the way we have become, far too accepting to the devastation around us’ - the images go on and on between pauses. ‘All I can do is be there silent and sad my hand on my sons shoulder” Thank you.
Nick Fina

Thanks for reminding us about the courage that immigration requires. Thinking of all the children who have crossed the southern border in the past few years--just to be imprisoned.
Attracta Fahy
01:20:33
Another beautiful poem. So visual. Sorry I have to go, wish I could wait. I’m going to bed now, as I’m working early. This was beautiful. Hope I meet you all again. Thank you all. xx

Mary Bargteil

How much did Ginny's physical environment (proximity to water) influence her imagery.?
Ivy Bookshop
01:22:32
Feel free to put your questions here!
Mary Bargteil
01:32:44
Which subjects have you longed to address but are struck so hard that they don't come?
Mary Bargteil
01:33:33
Yes Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath
Mary Bargteil
01:34:27
I love that - starting with what is in front of one. Weather influences everything.
Mary Bargteil
01:36:27
Ginny - I understand.
Mary Bargteil
01:37:05
That makes sense, Matt.
Mary Bargteil
01:38:45
What would you say to poets who don't send their work out?
Mary Bargteil
01:39:33
to be more specific who hold their work so close that they don't share it much
Ivy Bookshop

The question is: For those who write on the subject of trauma. What are the challenges, what are the responsibilities, in terms of working ethically? Does form play a role in resolving ethical concerns?
Matt Hohner
01:49:02
Possibly, re violence. I mean, it is a chop, isn’t it? That cut could reflect the trauma. I’ll add that the main ethic of one’s own trauma is to tell YOUR truth.
Matt Hohner
01:49:51
And avoid denigrating others’ truths and experiences. Nobody alone owns pain.
Matt Hohner
01:50:22
And check your own biases.
Matt Hohner
01:55:59
Thank you all!
Annemarie Curran
01:56:03
Very rich. And inspiring talk! Thank you all! So glad to have heard you all!
