Sound/Strokes/Separation

by Jean Kurniati Ng


Weight of disgust
a burst of exclamation
a trail lies


Emotion choked –
snappy cutting off of air
constricted


battle cry
The finality a mark
Of farewell


Teeth are clenched
lips forming an opening
for arrows:


A house
a man’s abode.
Who?


splayed
ajar.
A flow


Of anger
A gouge
pulling out your insides


Two bamboo swords
striking against one
another


A sweep of leg
destabilizes.
In length of time


the swift knife
piercing squarely
through my centre
