The science of images – a poem by Irina Kuzminsky

The science of images
According to Thomas
(Gospel that is)
When you can replace a hand by a hand
A foot by a foot
An image by an image
Then you will enter the Kingdom.

But who will teach us the great science of image making
Not for ill and not for power
Not to sell nor to seduce
Nor for domination of another’s mind and soul and means
But to transform the earth
Into God’s Kingdom?
