Abduct My Prayer…

Abduct my prayer
From this place.
Tear this drabbet sackcloth
With the pineal thorns
Of your forgotten regard
For my ashen essence.

Expose me for the birds
To gather and pollinate
And render ablution
To these fossilized arms
Until they begin to retract
(For all time).

Study these hands and divine a place
Where nothing is fully known
Unless I rise nightly
With the ghosts
Of this well-mourn’d spot
And shuffle with them fluently.

Art: “Love Song by the New Moon”
Paul Klee

  1. Your poetry adds such beauty to an already stunning painting. So grateful that you opened this gallery, Marcel! It is a gorgeous place to wander and bask in creativity, to get new perspectives… & to visit and revisit! 🙂
