3 Poems by Wendy Chin-Tanner

FREE

Pregnant,

skin thin as wet rice paper,
tense membrane
separating
water from water,
body from body.
The bottom spills
suddenly
out from the pail.

The absence
remains in my hands.


HIDE AND SEEK

sun moon truth
come out
come out
wherever you are


IN THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME

I will bury you or you
will bury me and we will

have loved as if
tomorrow had already gone.
