Stirring : A Literary Collection

Jill Chan


They come bearing pavlova.

We eat the kiwi and peach slices on top
taking in colours like the deaf.
Meringue dissolves in mouth.
The children ask how old I am.

Pavlova cut into eight pieces,
one for every bent thought
radiating from imagined ripples.
Their coming a smooth, round stone
that will not sink.
