"The Giving Birth "Jean-Michel Maulpoix

TThis year I am exploring French Poetry and would like to share some of the new poets I am discovering and admire.

excerpt from The Giving Birth

I dream of a poem falling like rain on the corollas, its golden stamens fertilizing an inflorescence of spangled hearts, making other silky and sweet-smelling planets burst into bloom. I walk beneath the downpour in the drunken field through painted vapors.
The ink petals have the same taste as the soul after love.

Jean-Michel Maulpoix
