A Horse in the Jungle Frescoes

Ausstellung30. 06. 2021

Horse in the Jungle Frescoes - Angewandte Festival 2021

Your hooves clatter and thrash
limbs snap, vines strangle
In stygian shadows others cry –
Reverberations of carnal croaking and birdsongs broken,
A cacophony of bellows and wails echo in my abdomen.
You wrestle in my sticky muddy earth amongst their calls
as my hot breath begins to engulf you.
Heavy, wet air thick with winged things
And viscous veins occlude your beady eyes.
Reflections dance on winding roots, trunks, and debris
Which enclose and bedevil you with their endless repetition,
They signal a crystalline haven above my sneering treetops
Impossible limitless blue freedom
You sought solace in the wild lawlessness of my chamber
You let me swallow you whole, and I thank you for the nourishment

(Poem by Erin Sankey)
