A Poem of Weights & Measures

By Tamsin Smith

 

another night’s scroll

through tender shares

a couple in Paris snaps

Anubis taking the hand of a dead woman

3000 years of remembering

it’s never too late to show kindness

or reveal the public passion of a sunset

even a New York vendor’s neon sign

alternating   H❤️T   D❤️G

indicates in fetching flashing arrows

my friend is never coming back

only some close up on Sunday drives

along the California Coast

while others bowl in middling airports

or race soggy dogs back to the sea

there are emotional reactions for all these

events plus multiples of creative output

the revealed detail

of self in progress

interior shot

alone again

hotel mirror

circa 1967

no filter
