Leanne Dunic: Three Poems

Test

 

Tolerance for raw meat is a good start.

 

 

You’ve got a nice selection of scars but
I need more proof.

 

 

Here’s a sleeping bag, plastic cup, a box of raisins.

 

You don’t like raisins – yet.

 

Flashlight, gauze, a bottle of water.

Keep matches dry.

 

 

I’ll drop you off

uncharted

 

distant

from city limits.

 

In three days, I’ll shout your name.

We’re For The Dark

 

Attuned, I explore forests and labyrinths – steal irrational artefacts. I comprehend only in relation to you. In the living landscape, mosquitoes bite my ankles but I scratch at my breast. I give my entire splintered self. Am savage, limerent.

 

*

 

Inclination

 

 

Meet me. Don’t

discount. Lunacy.

 

Lasting.

 

Savoury buddha,

two-edged demon.

Your insect eyes

unable to forecast

 

this dissembled

flower.

Extraordinary

must break, unable

 

to sustain. How

heavy to be

ordinary

now.
