Notes on Measurement

the basic unit of measurement
for poetry is the breath of the poet.

the basic unit of measurement 
for dreams is the slow closing of the eyelids.

the basic unit of measurement 
for longing is the heavy heart beat.

the basic unit of measurement 
for fear is the slight step taken backwards. 

and the basic unit of measurement 
for love 

             is all of them combined.
