Another poem by Alison Wong

September 17, 2012

X

within the pages of the Collins
patiently
these words leap:

a) exceptional
    exploratory
    ex gratia

b) explosive
    exenterate
    exemplary damages

c) like a nun
released from her vows

now when I speak of you
to strangers I say
my ex – leaving
the other words
unsaid

~ Alison Wong, Cup (2006)
