Come, Tell Me How You Lived | Joakim Derlow
'Pervaded space. Troubled land.
Cuneiform causeway through a pit of sand.
A Black Circus on Womens’ might
- Dear, let that kid run around!
His measured step brought entropic reveal.
The Keyhole viewer - your sideburn fear!
You watch them see
A seat, a hole, an eye - Day in and day out.
Serene step into Squares. Lines. Mono. Dim and Dumb.
What started as trauma was also delight.
Radiator gurgle. A yawn - and in your soft seat a muffled sigh.
Seeing is for eyes.
Eyes are foreseeing.
Baked stone - chiseled brow.
First curled up, now sinking down.
Your body pressed against soil -
She turned around:
- Come on, tell me how you lived.
- In the Grey. The Grey Temples.'
