We fell in love with the vibrant poetry of “Sainte-Chloé de l'Amour”
Author Chloé Savoie-Bernard
Here is a collection of poems that can be swallowed up as some people would drink the words of a providential character. In her latest work, published recently by Éditions de l & rsquo; Hexagone, Chloé Savoie-Bernard takes us body and soul into the bowels of desire, of an existential claim.
Sainte-Chloé de l & rsquo; amour is in a way a mirror where the feminine – with its words, its ailments – looks itself straight in the eyes. The fragmented writing, as refined as it is raw, is thus an invitation to contemplation and consideration.
frightened livid saturated
violent romantic and suicidal
I got my change at the same time
as the ordinary penetrations
sharply breathed and puffed up I took on the discharge
I put a finger more
yet I am still waiting
the end of my loneliness
