“Celestia; Poison Pact (of a Failed Artist And His Muse)” 24″x18″. Phil Barrington, 2014. Polielettronica print from colour transparency with dye. Edition of 3.
“I am unlike a mortal lass
From dreams of longing I have passed
I came upon your lonely cries
Revealed beauty to your eyes
So shun the world that you have known
And spend your nights within my own.
I shall be thy lover…
You shall be known by other men
For your great works of voice and pen
Yet inspiration has a cost
For with me know your soul is lost
I’ll take your passion and your skill
I’ll take your young life quicker still.”
