Five poems by the Malaysian-Indian traveller and writer Susan Abraham.

  • The Gossip and her Husband
  • Hanging the Laundry
  • The Dead Sea
  • Old Age
  • Warmth
She was a pugnacious sort, a lizard tongue

preying on overtime. She tasted betrayals

for trifles and gossip fed candy into her body

parts, her soul measured eternity all wrong...

Keys: toes, gossip
