Isabelle Huppert’s Breasts by Geraldine Clarkson

Degagées, two for the price of one,

in the mobile mammogram unit in ASDA car park.

Wringing the city and the pity out of your hands,

the female body which hangs out in the basement—

flouts in her pants!—butterflies.



her story unfolding in my skirt.


Geraldine Clarkson's second full collection Dream Island Home for Isabelle Huppert will be published by Verve Poetry Press in October 2022 (HBK, £12.99).
