A short poem that was long-listed for Hive Young Writer's competition. Written in Bar, August, 2022 (Image: The Chick by Frida Kahlo)

Hope caught in your hair,

wings, panicked, fluttering,

Tangling and unshuttering

the combed furrows,

that trace out like palms

a future untroubled

by the splitting ways

that fork the ends of desire.
