Quenntis Ashby

I'm a poem. I'm a dance of words. I write poetry and prose. I am a South African living in Taiwan since 2003. I'm married, and I have 3 kids who are growing up way too fast.

Disposable Pets

Here are two new prose poems. They’re about pets, and they form part of a collection tentatively titled “Disposable Pets”.

Sue knows the story of the girl who flew;
She stole an elixir made for a man –
A man who killed nine suns with his arrows,
A murderer who wanted to live on.
