    Clare Holtham - Anointing - A poem referring to the author's 24-hour marriage to an Uzbek chieftain - Read by Kristine Byrne

    Anointing
    by Clare Holtham (1948-2010)

    In the night
    we drank green tea from chinese bowls
    and listened to the reed singing of
    separation.

    Outside a lion slept.

    In the morning
    the wind rose ...

    ... and touched our feet.
