story

…he sunk down, & flow’d among her filmy woof,….

In gnawing pain drawn out by her lov’d fingers, every nerve

She counted, every vein & lacteal, threading them among

Her woof of terror.

William Blake, the story of Tharmus.

watercolour on paper, a3, 2012

 

the story of how spirit is held down by flesh. flesh and rationality.
