Temporal Migration, Pen and Ink, 11" x 14", 2016

By: Simonette David Jackson, 2016

It is a kind of melancholy

looking at the night sky

knowing the impossible distance

and time

between here and that light

Like the monarch when she's cold,

begins to dream of eucalyptus trees

follows a primeval map engraved in her cell

but she will not get there

herself

It must be as Adam felt after expelled from Eden

so Seth begat Enos begat Cainan begat...

until the temporal migration is complete

till I am, at last, back in God's favor
