L Kiew

 

 

 

Rhubarb

ear-deep
amid the petioles
engorged and pink

listening
to the rain striking
a timpani of leaf-blades

my eardrums
itch after that slither
adder crowning the rhubarb

its hissing
wire-brushes my cochlea
crimson stalks
 

 

 

A chinese-malaysian living in London, L Kiew earns her living as an accountant. Her poems have been published in Butcher’s Dog, Ink Sweat and Tears, Lighthouse, Obsessed with Pipework, Tears in the Fence, The Scores and The North.
