Artist's Description

inspired by the beautiful poem by: Yasemin Sumner

yasemin sumner


silk ___________

you’re smooth

like silk but softer,

for a long time

plastic kites were all I could afford

cotton dreams were the only thing I knew

standing in the rain

pitter patter

with a piece of string in my hand,

I didn’t know what silk felt like

didn’t know it was so

strong

didn’t know it tasted like

flying

a kite in the rain,

didn’t know it felt like

laughing

with the devil,

a technicolour bloom,

beneath my eyelids

over my lips

under my skin

in my head

around my heart,

didn’t know how delicious it was

to be

bound

so

smoothly

in silk.
