“The Green” Dwarf Stars Award 2018

The Green
by Kath Abela Wilson

It was a tree, becomes a song, a table, leaf after leaf, opening. We sit around its absence as it floats on memory. Shapeshifter becomes dreamcatcher, an escape hatch, small carved windmills turning very fast. We pull up small stumps polished clean.

congress of earthlings
considering the revival
of green
we fall asleep
in different languages
