Poetry 2018 Longlist, Rachaita Hore


Abbreviate everything

Abbreviate your thoughts

your feelings

your desires

Abbreviate my existence

into full-stops & commas

into chat window pop-ups

where you type away


without so much as a glance

rhythmic punctuated motions

of your fingertips

injecting liveliness into

a conversation

long dead

look away

I am here

all of me

flesh & blood.
