November Ekphrastic Challenge: Day 27

Jane Dougherty Writes

Paul Brookes’ challenge Day 27, and the image is We never learn, mixed media by Marcel Herms. When I read the title, my eye skipped the comma and read it as We never learn mixed media. The poem and my interpretation of the image is skewed by the missed comma.

MH27 We never learn, mixed media on paper, 11 x 22,9 cm, 2020

Thor Sledgehammer

Give me something I can do,
a task to make me feel useful,
valued; give me the one thing
I have ever been taught to use.

Let my hands take that tool
and wield it, the spanner
that unbolts the sky.
