Mutant Variation

Still from Bela Tarr's astonishingly beautiful The Man From London

from eerie of concrete
through slow-time
and dead-heart release
i watch the monolith breathe
all creaking earthquake weather
and crackling pigskin pucker
soft down the decades
to the school of hard knocks
subtle in the infinite
cut to the bone
and i ask the sky
am i here all alone?
from this eerie concrete
echo slow release
and dread heart disease
i watch you sleeping breathe
all wet willed weather defined
and financially hogtied
to the crackling decades
at the school of soft options
infinitely subtitled
censorious
and i ask the sky
am i here all alone?

this piece is beautiful on so many levels.... the almost-ness of the echo and the mirror, so well done. and the subtle parallels and twists. i like how you so this type of expressive work.
and the image is astonishingly beautiful, as well.
