"Mother Speaks Her Name is classic in theme, operatic in structure, beautiful, fundamental .... the very heart of a man's life and vision - all the gender myths and hells of the eons.

I am Oedipus born of the man and of the woman born of Laius and Jocasta born to fulfill his curse I am a eunuch castrated to serve in the harem

Frank Adams writes from the shadows, from the darkness, a survivor's tale in verse.

I am Osiris

brother and husband of Isis

torn into fourteen pieces

my penis never found

Mother Speaks Her Name is powerful poetry, poetry asking to be heard."
