What Mad Pursuit... - Poem by Linda Hepner

The face forever screaming, running forward
The mouth forever open always screaming,
The cardinal encased in his glass cupboard,
Forever trapped, forever haunts our dreaming.

Title from Ode on a Grecian Urn, John Keats
Paintings by Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon.
