“the origin of floating”

Written by , Posted in Nomadic, poetry

"Over the Ocean" by Brad Kunkle

the origin of floating by Lee Kava In order to find solid ground in a genealogy of movement I sometimes imagine that instead of sky or land or ocean one of my ancestors is the first body of movement herself– that her self- creation is the first calling between lines of genealogy. For me, her […]

Let the Letting

Written by , Posted in poetry

BBFF-award
