Blue or White

31 January 2013

cento for Kate Fagan

the world was a little darker
before it was blue
brilliant as nowhere special to go
you could try double blinds
machines parody all future empires
say goodbye to the supermarket.
unbearable authority makes me dizzy
shocked by faultless mathematics
technicolour pesticides and diesel slops,
i turn away ekphrastic
into a new present
of geometry and truth, neo-conservative
precision, anachronisms make truth
a panacea for ego, and the gesture
troubles me, still asking
opposite questions –
talk less, mark slow time,
draw inconclusive ends, hope resting
with invention
