The heart on the tray does not have a heartbeat & other poems published 13/12/2016

mayu

The heart on the tray does not have a heartbeat.
The wife adorns her eyes with tears,
in the shadow that has been sterilised by the doctor.
The shadow of the doctor has been hollowed out by the shadow of the Chinese parasol tree,
the wind is strung between the branches of the tree,
like long white streamers in a funeral.

New poetry from Ma Yu translated by Liu Qing.

what   !   a   shame
            it isn’t    the season
               for gossamer

the corner’s slope
         was steeper than I’d guessed
         and, braking, I was not sorry
         almost to roundhouse kick a cyclist

It isn’t fair      they are saying
laughing      he came from the north
expecting snow      now look at him
with that

Matti did you stack
the milk with      the dates going

— or with sand, slumped over
aluminium frames, signalling construction —
never having known, caged-creature, the slow-eyed wet-roiling peace
that occurs after a kill

Dougie does not partake in tobacco
Je ne mange pas de ce pain là, he says

for you my friend.
Don’t be bothered by
the Penguin Classics cover, ochers
of wit almost gone back to soil,
beasts lost in the flood or
survived but without tongues
or claws or feathers

I say
you say
this lousy t-shirt is Hounslow
I’m floating with Piri piri Chicken.
It’s mother’s day and you ask about orphans.
Car sex
car sex.
There is only so much room in an attic
I tell you with
signs.

New poetry from Maren Nygård.
