Tuesday Poem: A whimper after the bang, by Emily Manger

For the next three months, I’m the “sub-editor” of The Tuesday Poem, charged with the responsibility of making sure that the Tuesday Poem appears each week. Last week, the first of my ‘tenure’, Janis Freegard posted Agnus Dei by Marty Smith, a fine poem that is well worth your attention.

This week, I’m the “editor of the week”, and I’ve selected “A whimper after the bang” by Emily Manger, which is one of the poems included in The Stars Like Sand: Australian Speculative Poetry, which I co-edited with fellow Tuesday Poet P.S. Cottier. It’s a poem I like a lot – hop over to the Tuesday Poem site to read it for yourself and find out why I like it so much!
