My poem DINNER artwork by Anna GIlmore
Ponderings by Lisa St. John is a powerful look into the relationship between mother and daughter. Here is a poet who is not afraid of confrontation, and her courageous poems revisit the past where "There is something to be said for learning in a world of daughters. I am proud of my scars because they came from my mother. Ma, I never meant to love you."
