Unhealing / Medicinable / Antioxidants / Spices

Dan Campion

Abstract


Ubhealing

Her vespers sung for Philip Sparrow, Jane,
entitled to relief of sorrow, got
instead unwelcome praise from polyglot
but zany poet of the court.

Medicinable

Lucretius noticed the unnaturalness
of things, the jamais vu aspect of sky,
and even skin, when one has spent time less
in observation than in scraping by.

Antioxidants

i used to take tea with a dash of milk,
until i read the milk undid some good
the tea might do me. no more suave-as-silk
dilution.

Spices

One by one the spices’ dates slip by,
the best-by dates, the use-by dates, the dates
i can’t make out despite how much i try.
