Irish Arts Center Poem of the Week: Alice Lyons' "Marram"

Alice Lyons introduces her poem "Marram," read for Irish Arts Center's 9th annual PoetryFest in 2017. "Marram" is a poem that explores a mother and daughter's relationship, and how a child comes into language.

Alice's debut novel, OONA, is out now from Lilliput Press:
