Louise Warren: a poem



As a bird As a bird, known only to myself intricate, small boned content to be held by the wind and write across the sky an unbroken narrative of here to there and nothing more complicated than a shiver of water under a wing and nothing that I cannot leave below



Louise Warren’s first collection, A Child’s Last Picture Book of the Zoo, won the Cinnamon Press debut poetry prize and was published in 2011. A pamphlet, In the Scullery with John Keats, also published by Cinnamon Press, came out in 2016. Her latest pamphlet, John Dust, illustrated by the artist and printmaker John Duffin, was published by V.Press in 2019. In 2018 she won first prize in The Prole Laureate Poetry Competition.
