Cassiopeia (three back-to-front songs)
‘Anyway, I did not die. / I lined the sky, inside-out.’ Translated from the Georgian by Jean Sprackland and Natalia Bukia-Peters.
Every Day Was Ordinary
‘A life is an open thing / leaking out into / the air around it.’
‘days I talked with Zeus / I ate only ice / felt the blood trouble and burn / under my skin’
