An entry in The Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry
violet crimson magenta wilting hibiscus
baby warm six pm jasmine scent noni oil
coconut kernel clouds ripe underside mangoes
chopping sticky aibika frying fatty corned beef
browning heliconia sugar loving ants
opaque louvers wag tail eating dust moth
rice hot boil burst thick percussion symphony
glass cups slipping sliding dishwater
mobile phones cold dark silent sentry
geckoes locking tales son reciting timetables
private beauty miniscule drama
You’re not here to share it with me.
You have gone to be with another.
