Dr. Hurley’s Snake-Oil Cure

During the month of February 2012, Dr. Hurley’s Snake-Oil Cure, a wonderful on-line literary journal based out of Boston, MA, and dedicated to all sorts of literary cocktails, tonics, and remedies, published one of Rita Banerjee’s poem.  The following poem, “Expectation,” was published in their Valentine’s Day Potpourri:

Expectation
 
     after Gustav Klimt 

She is a woman
of triangle and circle,
made of curled fog
and rolling squares—

I want to hold her there
on my tongue, and know
what the shape and shine
of gold tastes like.

– Rita Banerjee
