Checklist

Hilary Tam

Crawl out 

from the underbelly 

         of a dream–

Run with birds from the sleet

                Because you can’t fly.

Lie waiting for the bombs,

                          So much like

         Stars in the quiet dark.

Hilary Tam is a high school student from Hong Kong. Her work is published in Fahmidan Journal, the graveyard zine and more. In her free time she can be found listening to music, poring over literary magazines or taking long walks.
