"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


I am a West Australian poet. I have an English degree from UWA and am studying to be a librarian. I have had poems published in Creatrix, Uneven Floor and Make Your Mark. In 2013, I came second in the WAPI Song Lyric Competition. I am currently working on my first chapbook.

Alexis Lateef


Time spreads itself thin

Time spreads itself thin,
wraps itself around us.
Time reaches from heart
through to ankle,
holding still neurons and
the roots of your hair.

Time says, the moment
is yours.
While the mind,
forever in pursuit,
takes picture after picture
of nothing that matters
and everything that will.
