New Chapbook

February 2020

apus-200

Apus – a chapbook of 20 poems inspired by the life of Frida Kahlo – has been published by The Red Ceilings Press.

The haunting cover image was taken by my niece Rose-Anna Waudby Ahmet during her travels in #Mexico, Columbia and Cuba and features the Island of Dolls in #Xochimilco, Mexico City.

Apus is the title of one of the poems and means ‘without foot’. It is a constellation in the southern sky but also references the fact Frida Kahlo had her right leg amputated.

I’m planning a launch post lockdown. Watch this space!
