The Law Concerning Mermaids by Kei Miller

I am reading excerpts from Kei  Miller's, A Light Song of Light which contains the following poem.

I do like finding out about how other poets write i.e. their process and so it was interesting to catch the snippet at the beginning of this poem.



As I have said before I also like hearing the poet read their own work.

It helps to understand where they place emphasis as it's not always where it's indicated on the page. Indeed some poets like Nathaniel Mackey  have see the performed poem as a different thing to the very same poem printed.
