From the Mind of an Asylum Saint

(Ekphrastic Poem for @addictedtomonsters)

 

Automatopia mind on paper

Starry skies connect ink in skin in mind

The old worlds holding new worlds held by me

Anachronisms in the moonlight scars

*

Aspirations from abstractions piercing

Through thought and time and distance with dead dreams

Live dreams form circles on circles on the

Side of a laid out breathing canvass

*

Ageing spaceships eastward over French towns

Steal church steeples to give way for new lines

Out of the mind of an asylum saint

Comes life from life after mutilation

*

Long after strokes in June-drenched states of blue

Come February nights in black and white

Carried from the since renamed province state

Here new spacemen have usurped holy states
