'Ecstasy' from 'Palimpsest'


stone in ecstasy
and why not if you consi
der the fact that ec

stasy means be
ing taken elsewhere – pulled out
of oneself and hence

not subject to out
side influence as when tak
ing methylenedi

phetamine – after all it
is called being ‘stoned’

The poem is based on a sculpture from 1910-11 by Eric Gill
