“Once out of nature I shall never take

My bodily form from any natural thing”

– William Butler Yeats, Sailing to Byzantium

 

Where are you from? They ask

Related to strings and rocks we are not

Ask me about my heart

Origins of flesh don’t shape the mind

Ask me about the colour of my thoughts

Related to fireworks and water

I am from the unexplored uncanny

From the depths of contemplation

Related to ferevnent intensities of life I am
