Under Glass by Gregory Kan

The Friday Poem: untitled, by Gregory Kan

New poetry (untitled) by Wellington writer Gregory Kan.

 

I thought that the things I loved

 

were places I could always go back to

 

but the spaces between things become places themselves

 

and threaten to swallow me whole.

 

I thought that knowing in just the right way

 

would be enough to free me from pain.

 

For those of us who drowned,

 

and continue living underwater,

 

this isn’t heaven

 

but I hope we could come at last to love it.
