Ali Znaidi, three poems


radiation//radioactivity//

& the red sun discharges its radioactive rays
& the red sun spits radioactive invisible lava
stuffed w/ damp daffodils, the little ditches
smile at the radioactive contrite promises of
the red sun
& the red roses begin to carve a garden of
radioactive blood where children’s laughters
chime
sun red sun
decants red wine
for daffodils
radioactive promises rehearsed

...

Fig Hallucinations

reconfigurations
          fringe
          fridge
achromatic
      romanticisation
      regiment

...

Spelling Mistakes

rite a passage a boat dying your hair
then weight till you get what you want
I want to take notice first
& wash my face w/ a hand full of water
