Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

living in the questions

April 9, 2011

wandering around this house
I wonder what it means
that I’ve eschewed
straight lines
and flat surfaces
for curves
and contours
swales in the floors
pocks in the plaster
doorways that bend like question marks

turns out straight lines
aren’t as straight as we imagine
and in any case
are much less challenging
–and satisfying–
than gentle curves

    “Snaps” I cannot believe I just wrote that :)
