Poetry Potion 13 – Transformation


The theme of the thirteenth edition of Poetry Potion  is inspired by the poem ‘Transformation’ by Myesha Jenkins.

Who I am is not who I was
And who I am is not who I will be” -Myesha Jenkins

This edition features an essay, book review and poems that narrate the processes and outcomes of transformation. Some poets choose to celebrate while some lament their transformation. Some project and predict their tomorrows while others retrieve, from yesterday, the dusty memories and experiences that shaped them.
