Writing the Contours – Jessica Wortley

This body is a story for those who would listen.
Its scars are words.
Its curves punctuation.
This skin sings lyrical,
its breath is rhyme.

It holds its history in the way it stands,
in the way it leans.
Calling, drawing you in,
so that you too become the narrative.


I found Julia’s poetry particularly comforting when my Grandmother was dying. Her words helped me greatly to put things into perspective, and have been a source of strength ever since.  I hope you enjoy reading them. Jessica Wortley
