Dance of Death (Dodendans) from the Netherlands printed in a book from 1850. This theme has a long history and no further information is available on the artist or image.
Each evening finds you
whipped to fringes,
obliged to lie down
in a world of strangers,
beyond perdition or pity—
bare to the stars,
buoyant in the sweet sink of earth.
***i will be on a little summer break..be well***
