Kensington mori by John Simmons

South
Oliver talks of the river.
These objects the pebbles
from a shifting tide.
Treasures polished
illuminated
displayed.

The expanse of time.

North
People talk of lost ones.
Their objects the panels
from a blazing tower.
Belongings burnt
grimed
destroyed.

The expense of life.

How should we reckon value?
How should we weigh the value
of life stories lost
north and south?
