The conversations are mind stimulating not your basic ‘we were at the ‘hanye’ last weekend’ kind of vibe.

Word Session Line Up: JUNGLEGARL

Ink Overflow

Junglegarl

‘in search of the perfect gem…. another day in my fantasy only my words cry’ ~ Junglegarl

Junglegarl uses her poetry to explore the major conflicts surrounding romantic involvement. Recounting intimate scenarios with each stanza, Junglegarl’s poetry is submerged in powerful themes such as love, sex and money.

He was manly, and maybe a father figure,

He liked it when i’d call him daddy,

Made him dig in his pockets,

After a steamy session,

His wallet became friendly.

From the poem ‘Fancy’ by Junglegarl.

She discusses navigating sexuality, guilt, social pressures, heartbreak and ambition in the quest for the ultimate goal; independence, financial security and thus freedom.

I want to sin differently,
Sign cheques worth millions,
Fully dressed with a smile,
My consciousness no where near.
From an untitled poem by Junglegarl.
This charismatic poet will be performing this Saturday at Word Sessions, see you then!
