Our strange, ruined, rotting bodies

Franny Choi - poet and teaching artist

Do you know Franny Choi?

She's a poet and teaching artist, and I like her style:

I am most drawn to work that places me in my body,
work that awakens me to the heartbeat, to breath,

to muscle and bone . . . " she says. "By 'body
I mean not only speaking about the body, but asking how
our (strange, ruined, rotting) bodies would speak if we let them."

On 3 Good Books, Choi explains why the topic of body language resonates through her work, and offers book suggestions too.
