From a man begging forgiveness from a tree, to a woman engaging in intense conversation with a snake in Eden, every poem is a realm of its own. Poetry’s precise form can contrast thrillingly with the wildest imaginings – listen in as these poets reveal the creation stories of the realms inside their minds.

Dari seorang pria yang memohon ampun kepada sebatang pohon, hingga seorang wanita yang terlibat percakapan dengan seekor ular di Eden, setiap puisi membentuk dunianya sendiri. Kenyataan dari makna puisi yang sebenarnya bisa saja sangat kontras jika dibandingkan dengan imajinasi paling liar sekalipun – dengarkanlah para penyair ini mengungkap kisah-kisah penciptaan dari dunia dalam pikiran mereka.
