Timothy Lavenz: Hideaway

remix 2 caravaggio- san tommaso ( 1601) copy

intervention by Bacco Artolini on “Incredulità di San Tommaso” Caravaggio ( 1601)

Pursuant to the thrice-

timed revolution in

character,

inside emblem’s tragedy

for my turnabout’s

prepare,

this letter,

mighty vocable

incinerator,

shares the intoned

plight.

 

Dim, in droves, our

contriving;

dimmer still the smoke of

no goodbye.

 

A batting lid sanctifies

the losing battle-

cry. Another lid

carries to coldest

distance

mourning screams. Last

lid

embraces all

paraphernalia

of remembering

dropped below surface

echoes

into fire-naming.

 

For a second’s humble

harrowing,

it sees, thawed, jaw-

locked in exasperation,

anticipation’s

exhumation

overreal.
