Alex Harlequin (9 Poems)

I write poetry, some of which is in very short form. I also write prose, particularly speculative fiction, and a blog.

Spiral forms
Curled down in blue
Against spark beats, pulling
Me from pen voices.

(79 characters incl. spaces)



Blotched face in its stormcloud
A blood canvas, gathered from
The river by the
Butterfly sting.

(95 characters incl. spaces)


The Echo

He sees iris seas,
Once his. That
Smile, rebel’s reflection. Words dance
In images locked.
Cruelly blonde,
Lost never-mother.
