Arthur Seymour John Tessimond (19 July 1902 - 13 May 1962 / Birkenhead, England)
Black On Black
Serrations of chimneys
A tree coils in core of darkness.
Incise the night.
A man slips into a doorway,
Black hole in blackness, and drowns there.
A second man passing traces
The diagram of his steps
On invisible pavement. Rain
Draws black parallel threads
Through the hollow of air.
