Martin Collins - Calligraphy

A bit of self promotion this week but I was featured on Poetry Life and Times so why not check the fine site out?

It's become a bit submerged so I have reposted it for those who aren't so handy with CTRL + F below


In another life I was mute,
written words were my voice.
So I lay awake
sculpting them
into a script
that could stain your mind.
I inked my history across my body
presenting myself as artefact
and all the stares, scorn
and petty human hatred
did not feel like trauma any more.
they felt like value.
