Brisbane / Writer
I am not currently in isolation, but my workplaces and University have an imminent shutdown ahead.

Em Readman is a writer from Brisbane who writes about violence and finding softness after it, amongs other things.


There is a moth sitting in the palm of my hand. He is soft. His feelers bristle on the tips of my fingers. He vibrates like the leather seats of my granddad's FC Holden when you turn the engine on. I turn my hand over and the moth stays put. When I turn him upright, the wings have fused into my hand.
