I can’t see what they make, little hands
folding shapes: a crane, a duck, a long-necked
goose, harbouring secrets in feathers
preened straight, skin in as-yet-undimpled rows,
the mathematics of what will come – what might,
what might not.
– from "Mirror Image of a Stock Market Crash"
The poems of this suite from acclaimed poet Ellen Kombiyil shed light on intimate moments, imagine lost pages, and meditate on the elusiveness of love and memory.
