Poetry | Punctum by Lisa Kelly


‘If all the protesters were smiling serenely, / would a scowling woman become / the punctum? Or is a scowling woman / too much of a cliché to be a punctum?’

New poetry by Lisa Kelly.

Poetry | Karma by Jane Zwart


‘Of justices, karma is the most poetic— / a magistrate who makes us wear / our wrongs: albatrosses, ugly charms.’

New poetry by Jane Zwart.
