Becoming Sane

Franz Marc's Fighting Forms

imagine the poor man

his eyes dimming his ears clouding

colour draining from the sky

movement stiffening in the trees


from prickly elevation to prosaic daily sludge

in the grey city in the grey century

on concrete, on ring roads, underpasses


death’s breath upon him

    I can imagine the painting you drew with words. Wait a minute; I can even hear the successive crescendo of tires approaching the bridge while leaning on the pylon in the underpass.

    Well done.

    Ps. Please email me about the journal you are editing. I can’t guarantee reliability, but I’ll try my best.
