The Human Scale

The Human Scale

somewhere in a room, a man carries his heart 

on his hands  & places this element so fragile 

on the palms of another. 

 

hope becomes the sharp edges on the tip of a scalpel, 

in the beep beep sound that tears the silence, 

in the warm breath that struggles out of a face mask. 

 

somewhere in another corner, anger is hanged 

in the dark spaces of an Instagram DM. 

assumptions creep in, seeping through his mind. 

 

f  i l l i n g. 

 

perhaps if for a moment, we can just stop

& learn to give space    sometimes for a second doubt. 

 

stress would be saved,   feelings won’t be wasted

 

and some memories can be a pipe, unclogged of regrets.
