Treasure Island

Frank Lisa IndiRa Francesca Roger Platt Cornish Martin


! ! ! ! ` “kept” unkempt


subtle; rather muffled is the rustle
when hungering begging fingers
slide underneath haughty parting ones

there are funerals in mind
every time a hankering womb
accepts a latex alienation

a stranger steely hue
in the midst of olfactory indulgence
every shard averse to this aridity

so many a springs
swept under rug for fear of
“legitimate” autumns

your rustling arid dead endowments
humbling crippling crown
I wear this tiara of shame

for I exist in shadows
a spring swept under rug

    Exceptional work here, Rehan...Woeful grief, on bristling display...and each line movement...tight, crisp...and smooooooooothe!
