Revolution NOW [10]: Not Since We Began

Not Since We Began

While trying not to get my best boots
any wetter and
fording a small impromptu stream
I watched a leaf,
fully yellow and caught
within a rain-river.

I remember how
you said it wouldn’t rain
as I was lying
in the bedroom decorated
with jellyfish.

I don’t mind this little untruth.

Not since we began
resisting the currents
of fear and things left unsaid,
drinking plenty of hot tea and whiskey
when we fail.


We are currently accepting submissions to our regular features: MONOGRAPH (a group of poems by a single author) and New Voices (poets aged 18-30 who have yet to publish a full collection).
