  You could have a big dipper   

Wishful Thinking by Laura Martens

all sand was one stone once, which

isn’t true but i wish it were

you crack a pebble and scatter

the pieces and kick them as far

as you can—well done,

disruptor of harmony, you

anyway, all this to say

i buried half my heart behind

the garden shed today

under that bramble patch we never cut

weeds that bloom grow there in summer sometimes

and maybe one of the soft-eared foxes will stumble upon it

if it is curious enough


Laura Martens (she/her) is based in London, UK, where she writes things and sells books. She loves skyscrapers, busy train stations and cafés with window seats. Her debut novel was published in Germany in 2011
