Poetry: Imperial Manila

Imperial Manila

 

How straw hat to name a cross a

cross. Is there a manuscript?

 

My bereavement swells

at your breath,

 

the morning itself is at a loss.

The word ‘critical’ has been wanting

 

a piece of you,

its heart whispering of halts.

Vertical gardens, the go-to design feature of the times…
