The Midnight Heart

Self-portrait as Woman and Parasol

As 2015 comes to a close, I am reminded of a poem that was posted as part of a poetry calendar to celebrate University of Warwick’s 50th anniversary. The poem is called ‘Self-portrait as Woman and Parasol’ and you can find me reading it via audio file and the poem itself at this page:

The poem was recorded at Oranjudio Studios in Columbus, and we had a great time recording it:
