Flesh Blurred.

February 6, 2011

Francis Bacon - self portrait (1972)

Caught in motion
skin and form push
corporeal edges.
__________

Death-mask clay
lopsided face falls
to hang.
__________

Ink blots out my body
organs pulsing
below translucent skin.

Francis Bacon - Triptych (1973)

Blurred stop-motion faces
sitting bodies
trailing melted flesh.
