how do they choose

how do they choose
by Maslina Arshad

how do they choose
who to die
that day
which spot
to leave
a ticking clock

and afterwards
how do they know
who they’d missed

Listen to this poem:

Maslina Arshad is a closet poet who is also a lawyer by day. She loves reading and is especially blessed to have married a fellow bookworm. She loves watching the rain fall, staring into space for ideas to form into words. She has been writing since many moons ago but never submitted anything to anywhere, until the existence of this webzine. She would love to publish the rest of her work someday. In the meantime she is happy chasing her son chasing the cat, somewhere in the middle of a town called Temerloh. Visit her blog, to see more of her work.
