Robert Handicott: ‘At Rest and Looking Up’

At Rest and Looking Up

Flying in

There were
Abstract-modern linocuts

Orderly confetti
Then scale working models

Till you bumped

Found yourself
At rest and looking up.

On standby from today
There’ll be

Scale working models
Orderly confetti

Abstract-modern linocuts
Then cotton-wool crash sites

And as you keep going
(In rapture bowing down)

A blue ball receding
To a twinkle like Rigel.
