In Highgate a Grave
Myself, replete with unorthodoxy
On dead poet's advice; wandered here-
In Highgate - a grave; crudely erected.
A reminder of a burden to bear.
Six words; a script of solemn sediment
Abducted and settled these trembling eyes
The apparition's presages present
Left one raptured in a remnant's reprise
We crave the fantasy of fruition
And Leave memories by casting stones
Until our success is superseded -
Our wisdom: the wind's whistle over bones
Yet, if only the salted earth I've sewn
I am ‘An Artist. More Loved Than Known.'
