"Association Time At The Blue Ridge Women's Correctional Center" by Bunny Goodjohn

Bone Song, Bunny Goodjohn's first book of poetry was published in 2015. In this video the poem is read by actor Shane Stadium.

Bone Song is about scars, about how childhood leaves its mark on us forever. Some of those marks become silvery with time, more shadow than scar. Some remain livid. Others, like oysters building pearl around the irritation of sand, form layers of padding against future damage.
