Francis Bacon

Ribs hung, symmetrical bones

Run across horizontally

Curved domes

 

Raw red flesh hangs

In the freezer, waits

For the butcher to cut –

  1. Powerful poem (and image). I love the work of Francis Bacon. There is an excellent biography on him called The Gilded Gutter Life of Francis Bacon by Daniel Farson which I highly recommend if you are into his life and work
