Six figures in space
Characters for a childhood
Of hiding, being made invisible
Over and over
The quiet mourning
Of the part-made life

Each block of negative space
Shining from within, play spaces
In the almost-minds of indiscernible children
Underwater, the land-locked intangible
Nature of memory
Real and by turns, not-real

 

Colin’s poem is inspired by Rachel Whiteread: Untitled (6 spaces), 1994
