"As we feed continually, we also acknowledge the perennial nature of our hunger" - from The Sadness Collector, Merlinda Bobis


Begin to conjure nightmares:

bare notebooks

poems without sound

breasts without nipples

a penis without a head

a mirror without tears

a palm without sperm

a saxophone without sorrow

a guitar without satan

a diary without a cloud

a painting without blood

a piano without raindrops

a battlefield without snow

a minefield without children's rhymes

a prison cell without sky

a rathole without a skull

a brothel without poetry

killing fields without a rainbow

a funeral without a crying baby

oceans without decaying ships and bloated bodies

serenades without poison

wine without wizards

a brother without a knife

a church with a dead god

a window without moonlight
