'Moreover, the Moon' by Mina Loy

Mina Loy (seated centre above) was a high-modernist artist composing poetry in the early twentieth century who counted Ezra Pound (top right) and the Futurist Marinetti among her influences. Loy only really achieved recognition posthumously with the rediscovery of her collection, The Lunar Baedecker – which contains some personal-favourite words from 'The Dead' –'Of infinite elastic/ Walking the ceiling/ Our eyelashes polish stars'.

A more complete treat is this. Feast especially on the last stanza.

'Moreover, The Moon'

Face of the skies preside over our wonder.

Fluorescent truant of heaven draw us under.

Silver, circular corpse your decease infects us with unendurable ease, touching nerve-terminals to thermal icicles

Coercive as coma, frail as bloom innuendoes of your inverse dawn suffuse the self; our every corpuscle become an elf.
