Ballarat

by Anika Karim

 

Service to sever
And dismember;
To disremember you
Who live within me
Nestless in my restless lore
Of yesteryear…
To delirious highs
Of solemn castrati harmonizing civilizations,
This story cares naught for thirsty stratospheres
Or greedy mummies
Of lovelorn false Friars.
For the heroine lives within your frozen
Horror movie perfection”
Of Autumn paintings and tangerine dinners
Before she could ever bear the fears of reality.
