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
