Poem at the Ekphrastic Review

devil 2 text s

My poem “(and the devil too)”, a response to a mysterious painting by Omar Odeh, is up at The Ekphrastic Review, along with seven other wonderful illuminations of Odeh’s work.  My thanks to editor Lorette C. Luzajic for including my collage poem amongst all the words, and for connecting me to the work of this artist.

(and the devil too) s

filling the margins,
spirits clinging to shadows–
the witching hour

The title is taken from a song by XTC, “Dear God”, a still (sadly) appropriate commentary on the world that we humans have made for themselves.

    Congratulations, Kerfe. I like how you’ve paled to both the light and dark of the painting.
    I started a draft as an ekphrastic response, then it totally slipped my mind. I’ll have to take another look at it.
