A Kind of Mink by Heather Young,
our umbilical cord
yours because you tugged
at my placenta
to hear your voice
before you mewed
and while the midwife dithered
you tied me in knots
I can't escape from
nor ever would
"Heather Young is a lively, fresh Northern voice; here are vivid poems about ordinary life that are bright, memorable and accessible. Anyone who has had a life will know these poems!
This book, along with Jeanne Macdonald's white lies are harmless, was launched in a highly successful event at Durham Literature Festival on 27 September 2004.
