Tate Gaia

Poem By Richard George

That spider knows nothing
of the geometry, Euclid-
intricate, it gossamers.
Spectrum-dewdrops wink goodbye,
colour-blind.

The tide breathes its mantra.
It has never heard it.

Pebbles sleep in bliss
to their sculpture by my thumb-whorl,
Henry Moore, before a hand existed.
On into neolithic evening
I comb the sea.

with the curls of the Maghreb
is in an altercation
with the ghost
