So fold again the horizon on itself and re-make in dull light.
Recite the stories we told ourselves;
spiteful and snivelling untruths,
as epic fable and us the heroes.
With no righteousness we crave meagre justice.
Seal tomorrow against another new history;
and those we have slighted
are complicit in their indifference.
North was inspired by Rachel Howard’s painting of the same name.
