Submersion

11:30 p.m. Dorion reads from Clarice Lispector’s Agua viva. She writes about the watery depths of caves. Water as the blood of the earth. Water as a force. Submersion. I stand at my desk in the study after a brief warm up. Searching for a gesture that resonates with the sensation of submersion. Body opens, shoulders and chest expand. Pelvis collapse. Body pulls down from root. Sinking down. Alice sits next to me and cries incessantly. The day was rain-filled then the skies opened and sun beamed down. Big billowing thunderous clouds moved fast across skies.
