Jen Wainwright

‘The Only Non-Conformist in the Crew’

J.M. Barrie, on Hook’s bo’sun Smee

Winter visitor:
inoffensive swashbuckler,
croak-throated ghostpunk.

Hollow hoverer,
stubborn little nest bandit,
black-eyed treeraker.

Tufted lakebullet,
vagabonding cutlassbeak.
wrigglefish chaser.

Chaotic flyer –
black-white-black-white cracked-ice blur –
crashlanding rippler.

Hooded merganser.
White widgeon, weasel coot.
Smee duck,
white nun,
