Lyra / Residency at the ACCA

Her perspective simplifies your complexity with beauty

unnecessary beauty 

fills her mouth with wild laughter

inexplicable joy – deep pleasure –

tasted in colour ripples.

Out of the heart of a scarlet giant,

the event travels,

like the image of a lake waiting to be known,

a still pool of longing, 

interior cyan,

H & O.

Tenderly drawing attention across darkness,

delighting eyes,

2300 light years away.
