Body remembering – grinding stone

Katie West

with poem by Neika Lehman

20th October – 10th November 2019

For Katie West, after Body Remembering

A very wide circle is drawn
much later, a Line

the earth is warm from the sun
the smell of hot rock is the same
here or there
with or without the Line

inside the very wide bowl,
that circle
they lean on the side of a clay slope

to sit
to crack
to listen

the Line is here
and the Line
will move
with or without you
