In the series of promoting my #chapbook “My Body Is Not an Apology” by Finishing Line Press, today I’m proud to share this blurb by brilliant poet, novelist, short story writer, Lakshmi Kannan.
Megha Sood’s poems show a vulnerability that is welded to resilience in remarkably ingenious ways because poetry occupies the interstice between the felt and the unspoken.
Don’t let the aroma leave the pickle jar
Keep the lid tight
my granny used to say–
Some things are better left unspoken. (Even My Grief Should Be Productive)
Here’s the wisdom of an entire civilization. Sometimes it comes pickled in a jar. Call it Indian or South Asian, or what you will. It teaches you how to hold one’s own, anywhere.
–Lakshmi Kannan, Poet, Novelist, Short story writer, and Translator.
My Chapbook is currently open for pre-orders at the Finishing Line Press. Any order placed before August 06, 2021, will be added to my press run that determines my author royalty.
