Beasts

dance #169, beastsText from Joe

“…to do biology, even with the aid of intelligence, we sometimes need to feel like beasts ourselves.” (Canguilhem, Knowledge of Life, xx)

11:30 p.m. A 5 minute dance in the study with Canguilhem. Beasts multiply. Thickening sinews. Hands like claws. Arms slithering. Back body writhing. Darkness rising. The door to the patio is open. The night is blustering. Winds animate movements. Alice is spooked by the clamour of the night.  The day was cold and grey with scattered wetness. My garden grows slow in the cold.
