THE WRITERS POST
VOLUME 13 NUMBER 1
three poems by CHRISTOPHER BARNES
Able-bodied soft soaping.
In the heart stunt was witless
In my rebut.
I croak interfering with hoots.
A legion, dismantled dunes.
The idoliser is triumphal
For the animation of his flame.
But I had to incite it solo.
Dawn’s look had dissolving views,
Disownment of an evasive trace.
Oxytocin* unpinked her arm
- the foetus should expect a pyre.
She deflates the doorbell
Emboxed by the transom,
Soft-nothinged as breath catches fill themselves.
In balled-up hand writing, “Dear Sam,”
Rolls to a girlish-days doll…
*drug that induces an abortion
