A Silhouette

by Michael Shindler (July 2022)


La matinée angoissante
, Giorgio de Chirico, 1912

 

A silhouette of a man walking
Against a burnished show of movement
Hears bells in the far distance
That sound somehow unreal.

‘Perhaps it is only birds squawking:
Not at all the sound of judgement.’
And this thought meets little resistance
As the bells peal.
