Ways We Care

with Gesa Piper (2022)

This is

a body of many bodies,
a stream of many streams,
a moment that opens to many,
a not-knowing, a surrender, a drop or many,
a drift, a float, journeys,
a rhizome, a matrix

of memories through time unmeasured ...

A three-headed monster
- the many faces of care -
turn to ask the moon:

is land body?

i land with this body,

bodyland now here with you
island body of water belonging

to this memory matrix
memory of the sea ice,

memory in the water of

where it fell from the sky,
memory in my body

rolling over you slowly

remembering together,
membrane of hard ice meeting skulls

like precarious pals,
karaoke of intestines to the

symphony of you melting
a moment between the birdsong and the body

do you see her dance you?
