Yr Angel Gwyllell / The Knife Angel

Poetry and reflection on a new visitor to Aberystwyth

The Knife Angel, a sculpture comprised of over 100,000 knives is displayed in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion
The Knife Angel, Aberystwyth

The Angel came with hard expression Not of gentle wings Nor of a soft halo The knives sharp Like words that cut deep The grotesque.. The Fantastic Equal Forget the harshness It's hard The Angel came to change Us Change we ask Us we ask ? Yes the Angel whispered

Poem by Heather Jones 2022 (shared with kind permission)

The Knife Angel is at Llys y Brenin, Aberystwyth throughout June 2022
