After the Holiday

Empty hangers size up the closet.


  1. The phrasal verb makes the poem emotionally poignant.

    Kay, I immensely like the sentiment expressed in your poem, which reminds me of one of the famous scenes in Edward Yang's The Terrorizers.


  2. Thank you, Chen-ou. Isn't it funny how we see things? When I wrote it, I was playing with the idea of weight gain, sizing up, and changing wardrobes.

    You have put a much more poetic spin on my words.

    I wish I could download your brain. I haven't seen The Terrorizers...

    Thanks for your kind words, Kay
