Falkenstein—St. Basil’s


the program since there would have to be one wouldn’t there

is the great sailing ship of the spirit entirely abstract of course

amongst the things of this world as bright excrescences

more or less confused and limited or varied

and then red moves up toward the altar a tower of red at the very steps

and last a window of reconciliation a high vertical tower symphony

and clear light on the altar from both sides high above it a perfect composition

yet another hidden in the steeple
