Poetry in Motion

New York


Patrick Phillips
A poster featuring art by Mary Temple depicts pale blue wall tile forming a fractured mosaic. Superimposed on the art is a poem in blue text titled Heaven, by Patrick Phillips.


It will be the past
and we’ll live there together.

Not as it was to live
But as it is remembered.

It will be the past.
We’ll all go back together.

Everyone we ever loved,
and lost, and must remember.

It will be the past.
And it will last forever.
