Containing In Itself All Sweetness
Containing in Itself All Sweetness is where the bees gather. A hive of spells, stories and statements, it is a landing place for all the prayers that women have ever uttered over time and over water. Steeped in the ritual of the now, the work stretches back then lunges forward, posing questions of ownership and selfhood, while exploring the gazes exchanged across bodies and the narratives that charge that negative space.
The second poetry chapbook by Arielle John, the work endeavours to become part of a full poetry collection in the near future.
