Part III of the marriage between poetry and art, continuing the exploration of the amazing work of Catherine E. Case, here accompanied by selections from my upcoming book, Returning – a woman’s midlife journey to herself.
The voice of self-loathing chants:
Never Good Enough
Something Wrong with Me
It is surely my fault
Leaving behind a black, oozing, cavernous pit of want.
The oozing, dripping, eight-armed beast arises.
Longing to fill the void
Sighing, It’s not enough
And judging this too as wrong.
