The following translation was suggested by DeWitt Brinson, one of our regional editors, who had this to say about the poet and her poem.
“Death and Daddy issues. Most of her life was in the grip of father communism. Anyone would reach for a knife. It takes a killer to truly understand a weapon. It takes a poet to understand just how many things there are to kill.”
Dewitt is assistant editor of Exquisite Corpse.
