Stitches #Quadrille


Stitch my love heart
gone ragged at the seams.
Concentric tourniquets constrict
full bodied platelets
1 mm from their centre
to merge and congeal within a pulse
of a blue vein’s throbbing
climactic, gushing
wingspan bursting though
diaphanous skin.
Outraged, deep wounds
heal quickly.

A Quadrille is a 44 word poem.


Author: Anita Lubesh

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
