listen to the unruly

material,

listen, respond,

listen, respond,

the form holds

material memory,

layers,

time,

layers,

timeless,

layers,

excavated

and made,

layers,

uncover, 

relief,

trace,

impression,

fragment,

layers,

continuum,

layers

of

embodied

knowledge,

immediate

and

slow forming,

real

and

imagined,

soft 

and

strong,

of the place,

of the present.
