In this paper I will show how the themes and language used in sign language poetry construct and show Deaf Culture and the identity of Deaf people as a collective visual people. I will use two poems in British Sign Language (BSL), Five Senses by Paul Scott and The Staircase by Dorothy (‘Dot’) Miles, to explore the images of deafness constructed and presented by two sign language poems.
