£4.99

and now here i am
trying to understand
what art is
with a child lying in my arms

the abyss of the other is the story of an artist's residency in amsterdam. it is a poem about being a mother alone with a baby, being an artist and an exile. the abyss of the other is evidence of the transformative power of creativity and creation through words and images.

she cries
she leaks
and with her everything infiltrates my body

she is infiltration itself

she gets under the door
underneath everything
through the possible holes
over her mother
treading softly
the withered breast
in a rubble of lego
and rice-cracker fossils [extract from the abyss of the other by cecilia cavalieri.]

Printed on 170gsm Bond paper and 380mic Pulp card in England.
