Comrade stargazer

2012; 27 x 19.5 inches; silkscreen on archival paper
Edition of 70, numbered and signed by the artist

O come astronomer of freedom
Come comrade stargazer
Look at the sky I told you I had seen
The glittering seeds that germinate in darkness
And the planet in my hand’s revolving wheel
and the planet in my breast and in my head
and in my dream and in my furious blood.

— Martin Carter, “I Am No Soldier”
