Weighing Things

Jackie and I
weighed things on a scale.
The weight of beads,
a penny,
a paperclip,
and in my heart
watching Jackie laugh,
I weighed his smile.
We weighed everything
that came to hand,
a glass,
a pear,
a little mirror with faces.
Everything,
neither better or worse,
less or more beautiful.
Finding what they shared in common,
falling to the earth,
inside love,
inside the joy of wonderful,
and childhood.
