River (part vi)

brisbane_river

[two fragments]

*

in your rejection of flight
you pinned the sky’s
legs to the bed

*

salt settles into the wound:
a quiet moment before
the sharks begin
to circle

River (part v)

Brisbane River City Reflection

[three fragments]

*

it was like this before speech
a sliding body that sounds
like silk

*

voices of the drowned
rise so whitely
they salt our throat

*

the ruined parts of yourself
wear the city’s wake like a scar
