My copy has arrived! I wrote this poem especially for this issue of Rabbit. It follows my time spent in south-east Asia, including on Christmas Island, where I lived for three years, and thirteen months on Borneo. It is a bilingual prose poem and explores infertility, ageing, and the nuance of skin tone and politics from my perspective as an olive skinned white woman. I highly recommend subscribing to this journal.
