Cut a rose out of a picture and another will bloom in its place

by Christos Polydorou


Study of fine
art :

in various ex
-posures,
paint
-ing,
draw
-ing,
writ
-ing,
sing
-ing…It

is

all
issuing :
billowing
coming out

of

one sheer
centre
of creation

like a whirlpool
starting
inside of you.
The top of the

whirlpool is the old god
of creation
(an Eye)
while your wound
is the hook of
the bottom of
the whirlpool (I, I, I). Pain in:
pain out:
spectators perched like wild birds
on their seats:

The audience is throwing roses to the darker:
Stars give the impression of a ceiling:
Trees sway at their most colourful in autumn:
No blood of Planet Earth on this evening:
Fish swimming on Planet Pluto mirroring:
Birds flying on Planet Saturn.

Step back :
darling :
to see
a dance-stack
in the crack
of the maniac
having a heart attack
the colour black
racked up
enough sorrow
to drown solar systems
of potential and ancient life:

of the universe
all its glory reflected

perfectly

in the neutral spaces
of everything
we lack.
