Liquid Bones by Sarah Godsell (Impepho Press)
Sarah Godsell was born, and has grown up in Joburg. She merges her work as educator, historian, and poet, in trying to understand how we think about narrative and power, how the past is alive in the present, and how we are alive in each other. She released her first poetry collection, Seaweed Sky, with Poetree Publications in 2016.
Liquid Bones takes poems as need and thread, weaving in small and big breaths, in magic and in memory, tracing in stitches, stitching inside stories, exploring the sky. Emotions are explored in soft black and white tones sometimes, in defiant blooming in other moments.
