Trouble Came to the Turnip

by Caroline Bird

These poems contain the most vivid and strange images - but how apt! Wonderfully wild - if not always immediately understandable. I will look out for more of her work.

As a young woman,
this librarian could knit a dress from a yogurt-pot;
now she must knit trousers with a silver hat-pin. She finds relief
in locking tabby-cats in her kitchen for thirty years.
On the thirtieth year, she knits them into bookmarks.
from A Gentlewoman's Pornography
