A4 Edition of 9 giclee prints on Ilford textured cotton rag 310gsm paper

 

Root-bound and resting in our earthen cloak. 
The way we’ve always been
not dormant, but whirring quietly in hidden depths
our fingertips reach out, entangled
in humic embrace.
A hurried knock, followed by another
now rushing upswell – I’m wrenched from us
Through the twisted passageway and into the above. 
Arisen.
 
The earth alight, above, brilliant and dew-dressed  
where time is regnant
life spills out of life 
A kind of glittering
Broken only by 
 
A plague’d swarm, thick and greedy
it snatches at us, breaking limb
it consumes. Cannibal, it was
once us, now fouled;
swallowing even its own skin.
 
Each day passes,
the bleeding edge draws near.
Ripping at our net,
we are now in tatters; The Undoing. 
 
One-flash-two
a beacon it beckons;
speculum-sacrosanct-
come collect your demon !
