Poetry Note Session at Mrs. Dalloway's Bookstore, Berkeley, CA — 2015

song

 

Where Have You Been? is my first song. It would have never find its voice without the musical composition from Jason Reeder. May you enjoy!

 

Where Have You Been? - Claude Convers / Jason Reeder

poetry

 

French is my first language, German my second, and English my third. When I began to write poetry in English, it gave me the freedom to make mistakes and explore the language without many expectations. It also gave me the detachment I needed to speak of certain things. Now, writing in English allows me to dive in a non-cerebral place from which my true voice can emerge, where I can discover what is meant and what is said.  I often don’t understand what I write in English when I read it for the first time, but when I begin my editing process, the gift of a new world is revealed to me.
