Brian Jungen - The Ghosts on Top of My Head

Brian Jungen. The Ghosts on Top of My Head.

i come upon it
unexpected in its whiteness
thinking it an animal form
until, from the right angle,
it resolves
into antler,
into bone

shape matched by shadow
the darkness its complement, its completion
its wholeness, its other

the yin to its yang
its soft, shed skin

these things take whole lifetimes
to understand.
