Meeting my Favorite Author- Jeanette Winterson

Let me tell you a story.

I didn’t know what to wear to meet you.



Dressed in your memoirs.

The writing hard as steel shod hooves

Of course paper shows softness, throat and fat too

It gaps.



I’m naked.

Only a line for cleavage,

Paper white shirt, and non-descript jeans,

Trying to cover myself with a poem


What does the ideal reader wear?
