Poems in English


People are still expecting this annus horribilis
To close its black box of monstrosities;
If I asked you about resolutions
You’d probably give me that look
And say “May this year fare us well.”

I would know the answer too well
And you, carefully folding the question,
Tuck it back into my pocket and zip it with your gaze.
