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.

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.

Under Construction

When I was old enough to qualify for monthly pocket money from my parents I used to buy a little box of Lego each month for R10 (ten South African Rand).
