Poetry Inspired by Anselm Kiefer

Vanishing varnishing points
Leadenly lead us in
Heat from exertion
Icy from snow
From loss
From pain and hate
And dropped burned books
Bomb these stark shadow lines

Deadened punctured landscape
Endlessly blackly repels us
Pale and bloodless
Not seeing
Empty book
Scrawled endless

Words emerge from the soil
A blankness awaiting new life

Inspired by Anselm Kiefer at the Royal Academy Oct 2014

Für Paul Celan Ash Flower (2006)
Black Flakes (2006)
