Accustomed to believing in image

Text: Derek Jarman, Chroma: A book of color, Chapter: Into the blue

‘For accustomed to believing in image,
an absolute idea of value,
his world had forgotten
the command of essence:

Thou Shall Not Create Unto Thyself Any Graven Image,
although you know the task is
to fill the empty page.


From the bottom of your heart,
pray to be released from image.’
