Grief as commodity

Iphone Pics - dharma, arm, nyc 233

All this talk of grief

Herehere and here.

They say they can quantify it,

Define it in time; By time.

By the hands of a clock.

By the mindless march of days.

Terrifies me.

Do I have more or less?

Bewilders me.

If they pronounce less,

If they then aver you mean less to me,

Will they also know to say by how much?

  1. Dr Meena, sometimes one is provoked to leave a comment or two when overwhelmed by the beauty and deep knowledge of your verse. Worlds of meanings in them. May I say how moved I am by the elegant, poignant and simple beauty of your poetry. Indeed simplicity is the highest sophistication. Thank you, Patricia Hicks, London, UK
