Description

In which Carla reads several of her poems live.
 
“and the hunter always followed
deep into the forest of campus
down the wide lane of Avent Ferry
into the shelter of my first home
my Mews, I your dark muse
on foot or by car, you followed
my ex-boyfriend, my attacker
("This girl just had a bad date")
Stalking your prey
Watching me
Your arrow cocked
Your cock bowed
Reveling in the hunt
REVELNIT my license plate said
and o you must have laughed as you followed its beacon in the dark”
 
Poems of mine read in this episode:

Braided Into My DNA
A dazzle of clouds
Bedroom Sickroom
You wouldn’t let me ride your motorcycle
Our Haunts
For the two boyfriends of my twenties
Hounds of Love (quoted above)
