Poetry: Fiona Banner’s Harrier

(a poem inspired by a Harrier Jump-jet Fighter Plane on display in The Tate Britain, a while back)
“…to me they were like dinosaurs, prehistoric, from a time before words.”

-Fiona Banner

A cross in the sky,
For flying.

A cross in the sky,
For crucifying.

A cross in the sky,
In motion, demoted, emotive, promoted,

Uprising
