The poem appeared in the Un(mother) film/digital art piece, born from a Growing Poetry project, and showcased as part of Brighton Fringe festival (May-June 2021). The Un(mother) film and anthology amplify the voices of all women who do not have children: from those who chose this path, to women whose bodies or circumstances made that choice for them.
