Author Biography

Ismail S. Talib, National University of Singapore, National University of Singapore

Ismail Talib is an academic. He is also an occasional poet for much of his life. For the past twenty-five years or so, he has held the belief that poetry should be a momentary phenomenon – that it should be savoured for the moment, often by the poet himself, after which it should be thrown away and forgotten. This poem is a beneficiary of the sporadic exceptions he has made to this practice.
