"Erasing Pages" by M.A.A.
I too kept it under my bed
with a leash on this creature, by the candlelight I read
how it was worshipped by cats all around and every night
it came to whisper gentle things about this turbulent
peace, the impending victory of its oversight
and eroding might
 
it was the thing in Mainländer's closet
and under his hanging form
the bleeding wound in Sternberg's heart
the baron's inner storm
missing love while the mind was lacking god
for what its worth, once attracted
there's no escaping its noose nor its claw
like a wave of stress warned by chthonic taste 
on the lips, with a smell of spiritual treason
in a few seconds its inflation takes the golden
residues of reason
 
I learned its words, drafting notes on the book
soon I was erasing the pages with its own rules
with every pint it was to be shared, with every syllable
it was to be heard, what is consumed on the bed
is spat out on the desk, wrong blood contaminated
with a panicky woe, trapped in the soul digger's grasp
holding tight I could keep it down, although I know
of its victorious months, it too was longing
for older thoughts

"To Panic" by Harrie Costello
I don’t feel it anymore 
What I felt When you came around 

I don’t have the prints of my fingernails in the palms of my hands 
I don’t have the sickening 
taste of blood 
from my cheek 
sliding down my tongue 

I don’t choke on the tension 
I don’t suffocate 
I don’t shake with it 
With panic 

Instead, I settle
I breathe 
I count your steps toward me 
One, two, three, four 
I do my best to stomach your aftershave and count the seconds of my inhale and exhale 
One, two,three, four 
I look back on the years passed that you let get away from you 
One, two, three, four 

I bring my eyes from the floor, 
And I look through you.

“Rushing Towards” by S.J. Saighead

Each day,
Each week,
feeling like;
Each month,
Each year,
knowing that;
Each hour,
Each minutes:
Is just that.

My name is Seán and I am the creator and curator of the Artistic Differences Project. I started this project during the lockdown in Ireland due to COVID-19 in March 2020 as a way to get my friends and I creating during a troubling time. From there the project as gone from strength to strength and now we publish a new exhibition every two weeks.
