‘I, Detritus’ by Dzifa Benson on toegoodpoetry.com

In my capacity as guest editor at Toe Good, I’ve had the pleasure in the past few months of presenting poems by some wonderfully talented people, including Nia Davies, Agnes Lehoczky, Mona Arshi and Sascha Aurora Akhtar.

My latest selection is by Dzifa Benson, and is called ‘I, Detritus’.  Benson’s poems are compelling, mythical; rich in language, imagery and allusion.  She’s a blogger too, and sistersirensroom  contains her observations and comments on literature, culture and the sources of her inspiration.
