Each member of the Queensland Poetry Festival committee has a short article and poem in Issue 5 of Frame Lines magazine. Zen’s poem is…
I am the cloaked detective.
I am the silent choir. I am the top
of the slush pile.
I am sleeping inside your pocket.
I am the gatherer of secrets
in my nest of old headlines.
I am Icarus, scaling the maze
before flight and I am Houdini,
with supple spine. I am a mathematician;
I can multiply. I am looking to master
mischief’s map, whatever
X might mark the spot of.
