This painting, Iberic by Carmen Herrera is proposed by Ronovan as a springboard for a poem. I didn’t know her work, but these colours are quintessentially Spanish.






arid as African desert

but the blood red clots

never quite dry

leaving black-stained memories

hammered like nails

into skulls

living and dead.
