Eyewear is very glad to welcome Sarah Law (pictured) this Friday.
Dr. Law is a senior lecturer in creative writing at London Metropolitan University, and an associate lecturer in creative writing for the Open University. She writes both lyrical and more experimental poetry.
Bliss Tangle was published by Stride in 1999, and The Lady Chapel in 2004, also by Stride. Her latest collection is Perihelion (Shearsman, 2006). A long poem is forthcoming in the anthology Manifesto from Salt, and she is working on a fourth collection.
Law regularly contributes reviews for Orbis and Stride Magazines. She also researches issues of gender and spirituality: a chapter on medieval mystic Julian of Norwich is appearing in a forthcoming volume Julian of Norwich's Legacy from Palgrave Macmillan.
these days, we hold hands
and go for daring themes:
the secretum was once prohibited:
impossible, or wrong,
its early japanese erotica;
an implosion of sketched smiles,
eyes bright as curves of song
as we once looked, through glass
at Leonardo's then untried inventions,
your breath on my reflection.
