RDW's poems

Kenwood Lapidus Workshop

Through the Hole in the Hepworth

Easter Island with its eye open
Sideways ocular: not predacious

Monolithic solid embraces
internal, external and eternal spaces

Egyptian rigid grandeur: Ramses
“Look in my works, and you might disappear”


Henry Moore Two-Piece Reclining Figure

We are a five-piece reclining figure
plus Sally standing, Alison on the bench
and Miriam, our chair, sits on a chair

Viewing Moore’s meatshop: joints a speciality
interlocking knobby knees — well, knobby blobs —
in postures of declination, all unions and angles

Weights somehow supported — all main masses omitted
Texas chain-saw massacre, drained of blood;
finished; true repose



Sulky hunchback hanging turned head
I, too, turn
Flamme bam “No thank you ma’am”
