‘Various Creeds attempt to but can’t split the world of spirit from the world of shit’

Abandoned Graveyard : The Blasphemer’s Banquet, Part the IV’

” Where some of Bradford’s past already lies
life flowers in these already bright affirming eyes,
though her forehead rests on some old grave
she thinks that time stays still, and never flies.

It won’t be long before she knows
that everything vanishes with the rose
and then she’ll either love life more because it’s fleeting
or hate the flower and life because it goes”

from : The Shadow of Hiroshima and Other Film/ Poems, FF, 1995. By Tony Harrison (0ne of a series).
