Be inspired by Duncan Forbes

The submission deadline for Issue VII: Tahmina (love & loss) is August 21st. Below is a poem by Duncan Forbes to inspire you!

Recension Day by Duncan Forbes

Unburn the boat, rebuild the bridge,

Reconsecrate the sacrilege,

Unspill the milk, decry the tears,

Turn back the clock, relive the years,

Replace the smoke inside the fire,

Unite fulfilment with desire,

Undo the done, gainsay the said,

Revitalise the buried dead,

Revoke the penalty and clause,

Reconstitute unwritten laws,

Repair the heart, untie the tongue,

Change faithless old to hopeful young,

Inure the body to disease,

And help me to forget you please.
