Three Monkeys Online

A Curious, Alternative Magazine


By Scherezade Siobhan

His: the tree that won’t shoulder the noose 
His: Celan cusped in the precipice’s phalange
His: a herbarium pickled in scum and flu 
His: a couture of surgical gowns 
His: black plague Barcelona 

The limbs of postlude; the limbs of Japanese
honeysuckle. His: viral nurseries. Taproots 
flattened to carcasses of bamboo beetles

His: the shaved head of an Indian moonstone
His: the empty fist of a Faberge egg
His: the knuckle that knots disease with desire
