ABSOLUTE VALUES

Thomas Kane

1.

How your hands mock how the sea heaves
Miraculous and underneath itself
Bodies forming out of everyday collection =

How the movie's a public record of faltering               
The lost child singing a pop song
Everyone here breaking everyone else here

This poem started taking shape while I was watching a scene in Omar Mullick and Bassam Tariq's documentary These Birds Walk where a child spun a kite in a mostly vacant hallway.
