By my own hand, 2015

self-portrait
The poet, John Lyons (charcoal on paper)

By my own hand, 2015

In the process of being
           this is whom I once was
before being
           who I am now

A portrait
           by my own hand
by my own eyes
           on A4 vellum
in pen pencil
           and charcoal

this is
           the crushed ash
of whom
           I once was
will be again
           caught here
just before
           love struck

John Lyons
