Under the knife blade,
my mother’s broken hand in a sling,
purple peel strips off
over the face of the counter.

He has eaten so much duck that he cannot talk to his wife
the memory of the duck skin slips past his tongue
to catch and clutch in his throat while a small bit
of duck meat is stuck in the back molar of his closed mouth
and the scent of Chinese spices and sweet fruit
auce clings to his clothes.

The winner of Room's 2002 poetry contest, judged by Joelene Heathcote.

The second-place winner of our 2001 poetry contest.

The winner of our 2001 poetry contest.

Hot

She is waiting for the end
of another beginning, woman,
always changing:
now the heat is in the core.
