Snake Weather: A Summer Renga (part iii)

As I post this, Snake Weather is crawling off on its final leg… so for now, please enjoy this third phase of the renga written by David Stavanger, Andy Smerdon, Cindy Keong, Graham Nunn, Chris Lynch, Trish Reid, John Wainwright, Helen Ross and Andrew Phillips.

he wears shoes to bed
she finds bones in her shoes
Spring cleaning

bitter hands rip him
from the wedding photo

AS

*

again and again
she strikes – the familiar
sound of thunder

CK

*

the wild plum
rolls to a stop

GN

*

more insects
at the kitchen fluoro
endless rain

CL

*

frankincense dusk
just an oud and her voice

TR

*

mercury rises
pommie bastards are wet
dreaming of EIIR

JW

*

wine stains on the carpet
this broken heart

HR

*

electrostatic therapy
shock jumps of laughter
with the nieces
