Artist's Description

Charcoal drawing and Apophysis overlays

No room for form

On the night when you cross the street
from your shop and your house
to the cemetary,

you’ll hear me hailing you from inside
the open grave, and you’ll realize
how we’ve always been together.

I am the clear consciousness-core
of your being, the same in
ecstasy as in self hating fatigue.

That night, when you escape the fear of snakebite
and all irritation with the ants, you’ll hear
my familiar voice, see the candle being lit,

smell the incense, the surprise meal fixed
by the lover inside all your other lovers.

This heart tumult is my signal
to you igniting in the tomb.

So don’t fuss with the shroud
and the graveyard road dust.

Those get ripped open and washed away
in the music of our finally meeting.

And don’t look for me in a human shape.
I am inside your looking. No
room for form with love this strong.

Rumi
