She tells me to
make small fists so they can find the blood flow,
and with each river that bubbles up I feel sparks of forgotten aggression. Swallow the needle. Search for a strength of tide.

They couldn’t find a vein; the body’s deserted.
Discard the needle and come forward with the axe.
You have permission to break open
the treasure chest.

Kleinsong & other poems published 08/02/2017

It’s like It’s like this Like a girl who won’t Like a girl switching lights on/off with her elbow Not able to type To wash To pick up those dropped frozen peaches Like this I could say I could search for it At Finchley Rd she’s a crumbly wafer and can’t admit Though they all want to hear Though only if useful Though hands smeared with ink are ugly, unsafe She clicks in the cold But I don’t know how else

Subproject Sixty-Eight & other poems published 27/01/2017

no longer differentiate between absurd and mundane.
The concoction of an entire atmosphere
from nothing–like the devising of another world
within our world–is terrifying in magnitude,

correct? Have I mentioned the machine-elf?

Wunderkammer & other poems published 29/12/2016

You can’t be mean, methodical and have a case on.
It doesn’t work that way. This sentiment is a skyrocket.
At 90 or 19, it sprinkles pepper-uppers still everyone
in love is a lamb. Chemicals or hormones? Cabinet of
curiosities helps in celebrating inwardness of intimacy.
Each weld is disparate yet all suffer the same way.

New poetry by Sanjeev Sethi.

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.
