From the poem, “the night wind””
“…when I step outside
it holds me still and straight as bones –
like binding me head to toe in silk,
pressing against my skin until my whole body breathes.
my lungs fill up with living and my arms
fly out like sails….”
An artist, poet, and all-around wordsmith, Erin M. Daughtrey has lived the majority of her life in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her poetic works tend to focus on life’s inherent sensuality, nature, and the imagery of dreams.
Erin’s first chapbook, my mouth full of evening, was self-published in 2010. Her work has appeared in The Weekly Alibi and The InnerConnexion, as well as various web publications.
You can find her on Facebook or request more information on Erin from the guild.
