January's offering from Ceasefire's poet-in-residence Dominic Fox.

Counterpoetics, New in Ceasefire - Posted on Monday, January 23, 2012 12:00 - 0 Comments


Gothic as gnostic: the down-
slanting taint of light
speckling the inert stone

a vast concretion
torn within itself
is it the great heart

of the people
that so entertains
saturnalia and alleluia

alloys exquisite judgement, unkempt
this-worldly mercy, all in its own time
