Ric Carfagna


from Symphony No. 11 (the inner recesses)


16.

Theories of eschatology

of shadows

of walls

of stains on the pavement

illumined by candlelight

of voices

behind a iron veil

of the significance

of distance

of clouds

of visceral architecture

housing a depth

of flesh and breath

further isolated

from a celestial deity’s

     latent embrace

and this…

in the atmosphere

of a cathedral

holding evening

as it enters in

alcove windows

as voices return

to prayer

to interpret

this theory

as it appears

isolated

in a mirror

distorted

along a splintering

line of singular sight
