Kim Pieters / David Howard: theHEROINsuite (2004)
the abstract science
she shivered, she said there was far too much obedience to the text. (concern expressed about this perceived dominance?) i was obedient to language? i don’t think so tim. i smiled. my bow is deep. i do go there. it is a field. if i cross the studio at this time to watch the light fall.
apparently this is a clashing and at least for thousands of years. other animals: their language is as one with their bodies. they let the rain fall. she, and he did also, i remember, quite separately without prompting: perhaps this was an old discussion, said clash of realms.
but i had thought they were arcing all the time. perhaps not very well. i concede not very well. never very well. sometimes beautifully. they were meant for one another.
a survey of land, a division of goods falling past her not really there, or at least half absent, this thread of incredible amnesia. all the better to fabricate war.
she watched the sky for signs of water.
