Issue 8: June 2021
Tanka Prose: 59 words
By Claire Everett

In Brief: 10 April 2021

 

Artefacts from Luxor’s lost golden city.

In Belfast, the gates of a peace wall jemmied open and set ablaze.

Closer to home, Kill the Bill protests and the road out of lockdown.

a life well lived...
the death of an aged prince
as if
there was no other news,
this warbler, just flown in
