So, this is the poem from Absent Muses that I ended my book launch last evening with. This is the poem that travelled into so many languages at the Adishakti workshop - Tamil, French, Manipuri, Swiss-German, Scots, as well as, incredibly, Bambaiyya! And yes, this is also the poem I read over the phone a little while ago to a dear absent fiend (to borrow Bill's phrase). The first time anyone ever asked me to read a poem over the phone! Which made me think, let me put it out here, for listening to, anytime.
