Sam Smith – 1 poem

Attitude, Accomodation & Attachment


Convergent lens

Flagon-stored rainbow bubbles, rainclouds and a land lit yellow by a low sun: consider how quickly the present can transmute into myth, get quoted at us as history, used as justification.

Divergent lens

Yesterday’s preoccupations as mildly comical as dated hairstyles, a pleasant emptiness scattered with air-floating seeds.


Anxious, fixated devotion enlarges the pupils. Needs be close. Closer.


Visual silence watermarked with failure.
