Perception (002-002)

“Methought I saw my late espoused Saint / Brought to me like Alcestis from the grave, / Whom Jove’s great Son to her glad husband gave, / Rescu’d from death by force through pale and faint.”

[“Methought” inscribes itself onto the mysterious figure before you, descending its body vertically from the tip of its head to its feet; “I saw my late” coils around a stunningly bright-red rose-bush, as “espoused Saint” bridges the end of “methought” to the coiling fragment; “Brought to me like Alcestis from the grave” imprints itself high in the sky, shining like a permanent bolt of lightning as it streaks across all of creation, though, “the grave” intrudes upon one of the floating creatures bodies and drags it into its surreal game; “Whom Jove’s great Son to her husband gladly gave” appears stretched thin, as it prostrates itself along one of the trenches, “gave” ending at the foot of a burning bush; “Rescu’d from death” teases you by becoming one with the flames and twisting and turning in how the words arrange themselves. Finally, “by force through pale and faint” returns in a laborious line back to the mysterious figure’s feet.]
