Tied up in not, part 2

By Francis Scudellari

Tied up in not, being
Inversely reflecting
Adverse shaded outlines
Of old selves undefined

Unbound in emptied space,
A frame-boxed negative
Starkly overlaid, paint daubed
With stiff, time-worn bristles

A new image, re-touched
Edges blurring, web-spun
In be-smudged unlikeness,
Shape-less becomes distinct

Self-denial reversed
Frees futures not foreseen,
In erasure escapes
A past that never was
