musing By Emily Ng

musing

dreams —

           crumple in aged lockets

wind salivates over hushed syllable

      and        crochet splinters

              of sin

      wintry howls

                         awake

                      when the casket

  locks

What depths are there to be taken when I inherit

         the blurred figure of corruption?

   trade blood apples

                             for hourglass —

      carve shadows

                    from subversion

   reminder —     

                         how one 

        conceives

    clarity

                       that makes

        so     long

       a

life
