Annie Peter, Middle-Class Quarantine — A Tragedy

The notion sets in,
the tension rises,
I explode;
my pieces flake and fall like feathers of a shot pigeon,
and settle to the ground.

Annie Peter was born in Moscow and raised in Berlin. She moved to Dublin for her MA in Creative Writing and stayed. She holds a BA in Philosophy and Comparative Literature from Freie Universität Berlin and favours sad endings in books but not in real life. She is currently working on her first poetry collection and wonders how sad the ending of her novel-in-progress should actually be.
