It seems Matthew in his gospel was unaware that the woman about whom he wrote only eight lines was a prophet. I pause with this unnamed Canaanite Woman for considerably longer than Matthew does, following her and taking notes as she she raises a child with severe disabilities and crafts a life of beauty and resilience within a culture of systemic ableism. I will read poems from my forthcoming book, a tribute to the visionary leadership and cosmic perspective of women who raise children with severe disorders.

While listeners relaxed on the grass, I stood under a tree and read poems from my forthcoming book "The Canaanite Woman." Students and other faculty performed outdoor dances and displayed art work, poetry, and handcrafted jewelry beneath the wide-open sky and across the expansive lawn at Bard High School Early College's magical Festival of the Arts.
