Lorenna Grant has been scratching around for meaning through created vessels of questionable model, character, quality, and circumstance since she was old enough to stop crying.  Whether of her own making or found - these vessels have had meaning in their harbour - meanings as abundant as shore sand.

and the shore melts - when the heat and the heart is turned up enough.

Poetry (and the poets) are the few vessels to where she returns  - like certain visual art and certain music - the vessels carry in their outer form and formless essence, all the rage and forgiveness -  all the paradox  that allows a periodic glimpse into the ineffable.

Gut poetry is what it is,  cos Meaning is unknowable.  Lorenna will be reading from her recently launched book, Sacremony Synchromancy.
