Postcards from Malthusia DAY EIGHTEEN: Kevin Reid



is hard to grasp

it can be ball-shaped 

but it’s not a football


it’s not the globe

it’s definitely not money

but it is the growth of fingernails


with unaided eyes

it is nm and np

the head of a pin

a human hair


if a nanometre is your foot

a centimetre is Britain to Italy



Kevin Reid travels and works between the UK and Greece. His poetry can be read in various online and printed journals. His latest pamphlet Androgyny was published by 4Word in May 2018. A new pamphlet is due for publication in late 2020.
