Helen’s poems are breath taking in their ability to both move and intrigue the reader. She writes with a seamless sensuality and fluency; creating a new and vital vocabulary for the emotional, sexual and physical nuances of life. Her poetry captures the beauty of intimacy, confronts the taboo and, although touching on the darker elements of human existence, beats with a beautiful, lyrical and hopeful heart.
Thank you to the wonderful editors Mairead Warren and Caitlin Miller for selecting three new poems, ‘The Wound’, ‘Pink’ and ‘Hope’ to be featured in the March 2020 issue of Irisi Magazine.
