Talent Treasure

‘Snapdragon’: Poem by Syahrina Hanif, Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park




Crimson snapping wires

Connecting a circuit

Of starving snakes

Coiled under cylinders

That buzz to the touch

I analyse your form

Awaiting an answer

To reveal itself, a rescuing spark

Nothing appears

But scratches of chalk and

Chants in a foreign tongue

When will you ever reward me

For my troubles

Haven’t I done enough?

I don’t mind being stung

A million times more

Until I can be worthy

Of seeing your soul
