Her poetry:

TORONTO 2012

Listen

You answer my call
by calling
me

What does it mean
to mean
nothing?

Life
inhabits the geography
of time

and parentheses
open their arms
to margins

You lick my tongue
like a lullaby

My branches
sawed
by my roots

Falling—
I drink destiny—
an extinct genre

I wish
I had
missed your call
