Quamrul Hassan


coming home—

she finds cherry petals

in his pocket


taking class notes—

writing her name

again and again



the moon rests

on my shoulder


five star hotel

someone reads

the Das Kapital


across the river

sailing away

the spring moon


winter morning

a slice of the sun

on my blanket


her lipstick

on the baby’s cheek

half moon


spring moon—

the sole witness of

the stolen kiss
