Project Description

The kneeling waves
The wind’s muscles
The precipitous screaming towers
The cathedral suspended from a point of light

In the distance
In the distance
Masts sketch out horizons
And on the ingenuous beaches
New waves sing Matins

The cathedral is a stone aeroplane
Striving to break the thousand moorings
Imprisoning it
The cathedral, resounding like applause
Or a kiss.
