Tan-renga: Seánan Forbes & Kirsten Cliff


bearing winter on its back —
a silent crow

I add my ex's name
into the spell check


cicadas’ cries
the sharp names
of lost loves

a phlebotomist asks
if I'm prone to fainting


saying goodnight
when I mean goodbye . . .
Hunger Moon

condensation beads
on the cake's icing

Seánan Forbes
Kirsten Cliff
Kokako 21 (September 2014)
