A Phantom Poetry poster of Hera’s poem was on Madras Street last week. It’s now covered by a terrifying poster for a horror movie about a doll.
I first heard about Hera Lindsay Bird from Courtney aka @auchmill on Twitter. I fell hard for The most beautiful love poem of all time, so much so I read it aloud in 2014 for Twitter Poetry Night.
Ashleigh’s book of essays Can you tolerate this? is something for the ages. It still moves me, just mentioning it.
I loved hearing Hera and Ashleigh Young at the Christchurch Art Gallery.
Both are utter stars.
