There is a persistent ticking as from a clock. I only hear it when I sit on my mat. Ignore it and it grows search out its source and it disappears. Through the open north window, a sparrow's thirrip calls me back.
Sarit Frishman, is an American/Israeli, punk rock whore, a queer, trans dyke, and poet/spoken word artist.
Informed by the likes of Gary Snyder, T'ao Ch'ien and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Ms. Frishman's poems refuse to hang the reader up with ego driven, adjective weighted lines, and instead, draw them into intimate moments of transformation, where words themselves become secondary, and one is left haunted by the feeling that the experience on the page had been ones' own all along.
Her past writings have appeared in multiple editions of Metromorphosis and Public Illumination Magazine, as well as on velvetparkmedia.com.
Sarit's first book of poetry, "Things Missed in Exile", is available either through Nirala Publishing, or from the author at readings or by request. A limited number of signed copies are currently available through St. Mark's Books, in New York.
Sarit performs her spoken word throughout New York, and can be booked for special engagements.
