Depth Perception


clothespin the brown-
stones under the sky
clouds on the blue
tack up the dog-
walkers and strollers
pin down the crowds

sticky tape some hedges
the stairwells and
shellac the shoes
to their wearers
thumb threw the intersections
round- a-bout the cul-de-sacs

I’m good at this, building
it’s so easy here
with only one dimension
and perception as thin as the
paper it’s printed on.

About vsvevg

Hello, I'm Abby Smith. I started this blog in 2010 to write about the pursuit of a self-sustainable life in rural Mexico. In 2015, my then-husband and I moved to Nicaragua, where we created a successful farm-to-table and in-house charcuterie program for a high-end beach resort. In 2022, with mad butchery and cheese-making skills under my belt, I started a sustainable food systems consulting business. Happily, I also have more time for my first love-- writing about food and the complexities of the simple life.
