Ashleigh Young and Hera Lindsay Bird: 100 Days Project: Day 71

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.
