States of Poetry 2016 - South Australia | 'Handbag' by Jelena Dinic

by
States of Poetry South Australia - Series One

after Vasko Popa

 

Always ready to leave
leaving
each time further
from the whispers
of the grass.

She has forgotten
her death,
the calf she once was.

Curled around an arm
a new name sewn
into her mouth
she's been there, done that.

A tramp, living beyond
the stitches of life.

 

Jelena Dinic
