Verse of Silence

a literary journal in India has published my poem 'Residue' in their Janauary 2020 edition. 

Excerpt from 'Residue':


why did you not take with you

the scent of forest that lingers on this coat?

the imprint of our warmth upon these sheets?

the tune that hums as the kettle boils

and bacon sizzles on the stove?
