June 7th, 2021. IGNORANCE

– – –

"Hums" by M.A.A.
Looking out,
it is all skewed and tilted
the flatlands approach, as I feared
still it's like a dream, stuck in a loop
...inside there's a lost man in a hood

When the green-hooded man rings the bell,
we lose ourselves to some totality
our lessons supressed by the knell
cornered by reoriented morality

When the green-hooded man rings the bell,
we scatter, scavenge, spread out in the fell
we ruin and create, come together
flock like sheep, and summon thunder

And negotiating with the man of the fell is impossible,
for when his fearful eyes meet a pair in kind
no one speaks, mouths are woven shut
he sheds a tear and rings the bell
and nothing remains of us,
so it becomes apparent then
that we are indeed

At some point it feels like all has been said,
and then nothing will ever make sense
again, as our dear ghost knows,
to be calm and free of truths
to give all for nothing
and empty oneโ€™s lungs,
what comes
echoes of nightmare hums

"Friends" by Jacob van Buiten
my Otherness is welcome 
between the old wooden
wardrobe and yesterday's

and we-as-places move
carefully freely toward
each other

with childlike fear of

germs on fingers
words on tongues
flapping of eyelashes
in which moments

an Otherness where
one runs for the hills
a gift of calligraphy -

("love" written here)

My name is Seรกn 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.
