One Poem - Nikki Dudley

Hi all!

As if you taught me how to hop again in the middle

of hurricanes and punch tuition, I lost the


That cancer beating your chest like a second

heart like nothing ever lived when people lined

upwards to see/speak/scratch and no one

heard in the dark the soul in tune
the light of death.

Across London , scanning words to find the tears in the day
for love, you emailed me between the madness and monotony and mould >

right soon,

we’ll write this soon but weight in your cheeks
much rosier now

I can’t turn you white again, with the powder of pounds ground
our hearts, hold on, put them in a pile and we’ll start

a gain feels like something and nothing

when I think about white spaces, white spaces and right foolishness
I never seen you
