Her poetry has been widely published in journals and her first book of poetry, Any Other Branch, is set to be released by Salmon Poetry of Ireland in March 2012. How’s this for a love poem?

Best Beloved
By Ivy Page

I sang of times I’ve never lived in, 
you wrote words like a snake
leaves a trail in tender grass.

Backlit by the cabaret
of hushed conversation,

I may have dreamed you.

I saw little pieces of each of us
break off to take root
in the loam that we made.

Our dance began.
