Day 11: Guest Poet 1!

Hello, as part of creating a NaPoWriMo culture, we are asking a few poets to do a three day guest slot! Starting with:

Charmain Leung is guesting for us today at NaPoWriMo. She is a poet who specialises in an acute observation of her ordinary surroundings, which seem to be sucked into the internal representation of her poem. This poem is her response to Pandora’s box, reinterpreting the possibilities of what could be inside it. Follow her on @cleung89 .


Box of Bees


A box arrived today, 

a construction, neat with precision 

delicately lined with lead.

The exactness of each flick 

a deep imprint; mirrors you,

your wrist action an open 

palmed dance that flickered 

in your eyes.


Disappointment as I handed it back;

your teeth disjointed in crooks 

as your pleas; repeat.


The Stirred quad is formed of Rebecca Audra Smith, Anna Percy, Jasmine Chatfield and Lenni Sanders.
