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.
